91) Teach Children Lessons - Imitation

"The proof of love is imitation." Saint Augustine.

Responding to a question on who his role models were, Jason Araghi founder of Araghi's Green Bean Coffee Worldcafe Company said: "My parents. They are my heroes.Their story is about being good role models." Immigrants from Iran to the USA during the revolution which saw the fall of the Shah, they had to face very hard times. Right through those tough days his parents lived in dignity, teaching him to be a good human being. Those lessons are indelibly printed in his mind.

He chose to set up his parents whom he loved dearly as his role models and decided to imitate them. That is what love does.

How do we score? Do our children love us enough to make us role models? If not, why?
