Kid who got drunk in dress to get arrested can teach parents a lesson
It's sad that seeing his dad in jail was the Christmas present the boy wanted. But even more disturbing was that the child wanted to follow in his dad's footsteps -- literally -- by breaking the law and getting arrested. It's a lesson for all of us parents, especially as a new year begins.
What kind of footsteps are we leaving for our kids to follow? What lessons are they learning from us without us being aware of it?
As we make our New Year's resolutions, we usually focus on whatever bad habits we have, like eating too much or smoking. This year, we should also focus on those habits that we might be passing along to our kids, maybe without even realizing it.
