It seems to me that the easiest way to teach a child to do something is to do it yourself. Children are sponges; they absorb and imitate everything. Having a baby who is newly interested in watching me eat is causing me to rethink my eating habits. Is what she's seeing me do what I want her to learn? Not really.
So what needs to change? I should eat healthier things. I should snack on fruit instead of peanut butter or crackers. I should be sure to pray out loud before and after eating. These are the habits I want my daughter to have, so these are the habits that I must form in myself.
