Hello Middlesex Families,

I hope that everyone had an amazing holiday break! As the winter months are upon us, we still have a lot of work to do here at Middlesex in 2018! Our building goals remain to be the focus to achieving our Mission and Vision at Middlesex. We continue to use the PA Core Standards and Curriculum to strengthen students in all areas of learning.  As middle of the year assessments are being completed, we will continue to analyze data to drive our instructional decisions with students. Please continue to stress the importance of a good quality education with your child, and that it takes lots of hard work to get there! 

Brief Excerpt from Parenting Educator, Audrey Krisbergh:
"The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He’s a chip off the old block. She’s definitely her mother’s daughter”, as these sayings suggest, children often grow up to do and say the same things as their parents. Much of children’s behavior is the result of the environment in which they are raised. One way that parents directly influence their children is through the actions and words they exhibit. Parents are role models for their children.

Role models are people who influence others by being examples. They are often admired by the people who copy them. Scientists have found that children learn through watching and repeating what others do. Parents and caregivers, who are in children’s lives on a daily basis, are their most important role models. It is impossible to
not model. Your children will see your example – positive or negative – as the way they should act.

When used to your benefit, role modeling allows you to pass on the values you want your children to have so they can become the adults you would like them to be. Your children are watching you all the time. You can be most effective if you think about and reflect on what behaviors you model for them: (1) walk the talk, (2) choose your words carefully, (3) review your own behavior and attitudes, (4) focus on positives you can model, (5) build strong relationships with your children, and (6) be forgiving of mistakes.

The question is not whether your children will imitate you; they will. The question is which behaviors they will copy. As you consciously continue to be a positive role model, you can impact not only your children’s development but also your family for generations to come.- Audrey Krisbergh, Parenting Educator
