The Worst Parenting Line EVER!
The worst piece of parenting advice we can give our kids is the old adage:
"Do what I SAY and not what I DO!" because frankly...this approach doesn't work.
So if you curse and swear, guess what...so will your kids.
If you gossip about family members...so will you kids.
If you eat junk food from sun up to bedtime...so will your kids.
If you sit on the couch all day long...so will your kids.
If you badmouth authority figures like teachers and police...so will your kids.
If you hate your ex-husband or wife...so will your kids.
If you are dishonest but justify your behavior...so will your kids.
If you TEXT WHILE DRIVING...so will your kids (when they are 16 and barely able to drive!)
I think you get it. So what are you going to do in response to this?
Become a better person and in turn, a better parent.
Because your kids deserve you in your best form, so they can become the best form of themselves.
Reflect on your behavior and resolve to do better, for you and your children.
