What Children See
Years ago, a friend of mine told me a story about driving down the street, with his granddaughter in the car. A woman, with a car full of kids, ran a stop sign, almost hit him and then proceeded to roll her window down and scream every foul word he had ever heard at her, all the while shooting him the finger, and all the while her children watched and listened, as did my friend's granddaughter. I was appalled. Sadly, I have witnessed this behavior myself in the interim. This spot illustrates that children often mimick those who supposedly care for them. Be very careful the example you set. In your later years, you will regret it if you don't.
