Life lessons from Mister Rogers?

Piggybacking off of this sweet Mr. Rogers post about talking to kids, what is your favorite memory of Mr. Rogers as a kid? What lessons have you taken into your life as a parent? Mine is just patience. Mr. Rogers was also so patient, so happy to talk to kids. I try to remember that when I get frustrated with my own LOs.

    Mister Rogers (and even Daniel Tiger) always talked to kids about how it's normal to feel sad and angry sometimes. I took that to heart, and I think it's something that's so important to keep in mind when raising kids too.

    That is always a beautiful day in the neighborhood and it’s a happy feeling to know that you’re alive! 😊

    I just remember how much it meant to me as a child that he was always so calm and warm. It seemed like all the adults in my life were busy running around and stressed and had their own problems but Mr. Rogers wasn't like that at all. As a parent now I try my best (and only sometimes succeed) to be mindful of the fact that my children don't know about all the stuff I have to get done, they just think I don't have time for them. So I try to sit down and make eye contact and talk to them whenever I can, even if just for a moment.
