Moms are a huge influence on their daughters. My own mother’s calm demeanor in child rearing is something I have inherited from her. Since, I had my daughter at the ripe old age of forty, much has changed in recommended parenting techniques, but keeping a cool head is helpful no matter what your parenting style.
I am working hard to be a good role model for my own daughter. She already loves drinking milk, eating fruits and vegetables and is a very active child, but I want to also set the example for her to continue with these good habits throughout her life. I have been working on changing my own eating habits for some time now, and have already seen positive results from that. Recently, I added a daily workout routine to my morning schedule, and have been taking my daughter on walks with me. The extra exercise is beneficial to my health and sets a good precedent for her.
A recent study has shown that moms who maintain a healthy lifestyle, that incorporates a wide variety of healthful foods like milk and fruits and vegetables, as well as exercise, have daughters who also live a similar healthy lifestyle. So I guess I am on the right track.
To learn more about the study, Like Mother Like Daughter role modeling campaign, and several other great features “like” the Milk Mustache Campaign on Facebook
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the National Milk Mustache got milk? Campaign and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
