A great thought from All Pro Dad
"Our children learn first and primarily by our model. They are forever observing our actions, our lifestyle. If what we say is not consistent with what we do, they are the first to recognize it and usually to tell us so. Someone has suggested that until a boy is fifteen, he does what his father says; after that, he does what his father does. This is both a frightening and wonderful thought for most parents."
I've subscribed to their daily email for a while now, on recommendation from someone on this site, and it's well worth reading.

Re: A great thought from All Pro Dad
I've been a subscriber for a couple yrs now and the advice from the daily emails have helped with the relationship with both my kids and wife. Really some great advice. But, like any advice, in order for it to be good, you must put it into action. Do so, and you will thank yourself.
