As an adult I am still to this day questioned and looked upon as odd because I choose not to drink alcohol and I am 40 years old. I am not saying drinking is evil, it’s not, but it can lead to addiction and I am not willing to risk that. I like to be in control of myself. Many people do things they would never do sober when they are drunk.
As a parent I cannot stand to see parents drinking in excess in front of their children. Children do what they see not what they are told to do. As a parent it is our responsibility to teach our children how to grow and lead a responsible life through our actions and behaviors.
As a parent is the example you are setting for your children respectable and responsible? If it is then hopefully you will see that in your children in years to come. If it is not you can change your actions.
Being a parent is an unbelievable responsibility. There are many sacrifices we make on a daily basis to teach our children and raise them to be healthy, responsible, good adults. Take a moment to consider if your actions are leading them in that direction. As parents we need to reflect on our actions often to make sure that we are setting the best example possible for our children.
