Truth AND consequences

KNOW THIS: Your young people are paying attention to EVERYTHING you say and do. They identify with your thoughts and behaviors to give them a sense of belonging. They use your integrity and hypocrisy as a metronome by which to calibrate their moral compass. They model how you treat others and how you respond to adversity and pressure; this becomes how they cope with life's challenges. Even when they smack their lips, roll their eyes and suck their teeth, they feel and hear what you are saying. They watch what you do, and receive that data into their brain computer for processing. THEY ARE WATCHING, AND WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME FACSIMILES OF YOU. Now ... sit with that for a while.
