“There is a huge responsibility that comes with having a child. It is not just a matter of financially providing for them, taking care of their health and making sure they are safe. The most arduous undertaking is teaching them good manners and imparting them with highest values. You want to make sure that they grow up to be an individual who can distinguish between what is right and what is wrong and act accordingly. Observing people’s behavior, I am inclined to think that many parents did not do their job well. How condescending of me to say that, right? Sure, one cannot blame bad parents for every single poor choice adults make, however, what you teach your children and how you treat them matters. It has a great impact on what kind of people they will grow up to be. If you sanction bad behavior at an early stage, chances are it will not repeat itself later in life.”
