The Kids are Watching

Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

Benjamin Franklin

Do you wonder where all of our role models have gone? Our social-media need-to-know society seems to know everything about our heroes, good and bad. It’s tough to portray a squeaky clean image. Role models aren’t perfect people, they are regular people who choose to make good choices consistently. Be a role model for your kids. In other words, be better than who you would naturally be. In time you can form better habits and become the man or woman you want to be. Your actions will not only help you. They will help your friends and family too. Most importantly your actions will help give your kids the skills to make their lives better.
