We all know the phrases: “like mother like daughter” or “like father like son” , but sometimes, do we mean it literally?
I know we’ve all had/seen parents who tell us not to do something or act a certain way, but then a second later, we see them doing the thing(s) they told us not to do.
Parents need to be a good role model for their kids, they need to exemplify the behaviours that they try and encourage. Don’t blame future generations for ruining the good things in the world, when it might be you who’s at fault for ruining them.
“Whether or not you have children yourself, you are a parent to the next generation. If we can only stop thinking of children as individual property and think of them as the next generation, then we can realize we all have a role to play.” – Charlotte Davis Kasl
