What Are You Teaching Your Children?

Parents... what are you teaching your children? Are you reading to them? Are you teaching them how to add and subtract? Are you teaching them that police are people who can help you when you are in trouble? Are you teaching them to respect others and to be kind to people and animals? Are you teaching them to do well in school? Are you teaching them that it is important to tell the truth? Are you teaching them that everyone has rights and responsibilities? Are you teaching them that they need to set goals and go after them? Are you teaching them to avoid crime, drugs and gangs? Have you told them that blaming others, blaming racial differences and dwelling on the past will make them unhappy? Are you spending time with them? Do you tell them that you love them? Have you told them that it is important to work hard and have a good work ethic?

If not, WHY?
