For any of you out there who have children, you know how crucial it is to be a solid role model for them. That means being honest, honorable, and a well-rounded family person. Parents can’t afford to go out and drink every night, do drugs, avoid traffic violation tickets, get into arguments (that could lead to altercations), etc. Having a child means the consequences of such actions are more heartbreaking:
Your child could grow up without you in his or her life.
Your child, old enough to know what you had been up to, could make the serious decision to cut you out of their life.
Your child could also begin to start trouble and end up in jail, just like you.
Your family is no longer a family, and your home is no longer a home.
You can avoid all of this simply by looking and evaluating how you are as a parent. Mistakes happen and people do forgive, but it’s best to try and just avoid that mistake altogether!
