Quoting I AM TRON:" Children can be the best educators to other children!! (this is also the same reason why they are sometimes ... [snip!] ... they are sometimes really bad examples :P) It sounds like you have a good role model on your hands, I would soak that up!! :)"


oh i do. i always tell them they need to be on their best behavior to be good examples. Gavin is really good with younger kids. he helped teach Will (the youngest) to walk. He showed my nephew how to hold a pencil. we go crazy for good behavior... and we are really strict about bad behavior. if we have a bad day out i tell them coming out is a privelige and we can just stay home all the time... but if they are really good i tell them i might see what other fun stuff we can do (right now they earn horseback riding for being exteamly good)
