Be the example!
"Bad company corrupts good character." - 1 Corinthians 15:33
As a parent we must be watchful and particular about the friends our children keep. If you notice that your child or young teen is picking up bad habits, look to the source of it.
Now, on this note, maybe WE are the source of their bad habits! What example do we put out for our children?
Do we curse?
Do we hate others who are not like us? (Racism)
Are we negative about everything?
Are we lazy and unmotivated?
Are we judgmental or always making excuses for what we do wrong?
If so, guess what kind of kids we are raising....
Kids who curse and disrespect teachers and others. Kids who bully others. Kids who are down on themselves, lazy, unmotivated, negative, full of excuses!
We need to be the best example for our children! How can we expect more of them when giving them less of us? Parents have the biggest responsibility.
Our kids will reflect what they see... what are you showing your child?

If you really want to change the world, then you must start with yourself. If you ask me, there are a lot of people who hate how we are today, but are not making an effort to change things. I mean, what does complaining do? If you really want to make a difference, then be the example. I know that a lot of people will take this as a grain of salt, but we really need to change ourselves first.
