Silence is Golden

I loved this blog post (The Best Teaching Tip No One Ever Tells You) over at Heart of the Matter Online. It is very simple advice, but wise. SO WISE.

As I teach my kids self-control, I need to have self-control too. Teaching doesn’t equal talking… I need to remember to leave some silence for them to think, analyze, and answer.

What do you think?
