Sins of the parents
Are we setting a bad example?

Tea is my main vice.

'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?

Here are some other parents setting debatable examples:

Smoking father

Sex and the single parent

Foul-mouthed mommy

Let the parent who has never set a bad example come forward now - we will hail you! Or confess your imperfect example setting. The best letter could win a Parent24 T-shirt.
