'Mommy, can I make you some tea?' is music to my ears and the kids know it.
But I recently became aware that appearing so dependent on a substance - however harmless - is setting a bad example for my kids.
Phew! Time for some changes to my tea habits?

Let the parent who has never set a bad example come forward

your imperfect example setting. The best letter could win a Parent24 T-shirt.
