A good article piqued my attention recently. It might be the "mindfulness" part of me, maybe the "parent" in me. Probably because so much of my day is spent trying to do both at once.
A key takeaway for me is that we teach our children most about how to deal with others when we disagree with them. How we treat our children when we disagree is where they learn how to treat others when times get stressful or tense.
If you have a child (and a few minutes), you might give it a read: http://www.mindful.org/mindful-parenting-may-keep-kids-trouble/.
