The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.

Paulo Coelho

All parents are hypocrites.

We don’t always follow our own advice.

This doesn’t mean we are bad parents. It means we are human.

If our behavior is somewhat consistent with our advice, our children might treat our advice as worth consideration.

However, the most powerful example is admitting when we fall short and then correcting our behavior.
