Children See. Children Do.

Wow. I’m probably the last one to see this, but just in case I’m NOT, here it is.

One of the most powerful ads I’ve ever seen.

  1. Wow. Thanks for putting that one up…why can’t ads like those play during prime time?

  2. Wow. That gave me goosebumps.

  3. First time I saw this I cried, why do people have to be so nasty… and in front of their kids

  4. Wow. That hurts my heart. But totally makes you think before you do/speak.

  5. I had not seen it.
    And it …….made me so so sad.
    But what a tool.
    What a lesson.

    They should give out the copy to every new parent when they leave the hospital with their unprogrammed newborn I think.

  6. Yowza. I’m with Monkeytoemama–that gave me goosebumps. I had not seen. Thanks for posting.

  7. i’m crying… not that any of those things necessary apply directly to me. but it is a huge wake-up call. even watching my 2yr old emulate my 4yr old gives me the goosebumps.

    i’m crying right now. so yeah. THANKS!


  8. This post needed a warning. I was in no state to watch this tonight. Wow. It’s rare that I’m speechless. All I can muster is wow.

  9. I’m pretty sure that I’m officially the last person to see that. Thanks for thinking to post it; it bears repeating even if most people have seen it. Just reminds me yet again how little control but much influence we adults have over children, and how important it is to be aware of it.

    Oh… My… God… I am completely choked up and in tears over here. THANK YOU for playing that. I think I will be using it as an example to my children WHY we should ALWAYS watch how we act. Thankfully I can say I know firsthand that some children worked REALLY hard to avoid being like that last little scene. Thank you for the reminder of what I have worked so hard to overcome. It was a struggle, but watching that reminds me that ANYONE can make a difference in influencing the outcome. I am gonna find this and re-post it over on my blog too…

  11. I have never seen this. I am covered in goosebumps. That need to be played everywhere.

  12. Wow. That’s an awesome one. Thank you for this. 🙂

  13. Thank you for sharing, I haven’t seen it, but you can bet I’m going to repost it myself. We should all be so concerned with how our children perceive our actions. Whether they are extreme or not. Even cynicism and laziness can be emulated. This should be required viewing once a week for anyone who has kids.

  14. What a fabulous, fabulous reminder to me. Damn.

    Thank you for the comment. I am proud to say that I was not tired this time when I put the html in so I will now also be showing this wonderful video on my page, and not just the link.

  16. I’ve never seen this before. This was amazing. I’m sitting here crying at 4:00 in the afternoon. This touched me and made me hug my children an extra time just now. Thank you for sharing.

  17. I hadn’t seen that either. Amazing.

  18. Powerful stuff. *tears*

    Thanks for the reminder, MP.

  19. I’ve never seen this before, and it’s a great reminder that even the little things we do and say in front of our children can have a big impact. Thank you.

    You made me cry. Thanks. No, I mean it. Thank you.

  21. Dayum. Mind if I repost??
    Very powerful.

  22. Every now and then, the power of parenting scares me.

  23. Oh.My.God. That made me cry.

    Would you be offended if I re-post?
