Let's talk about parenting for the future... Beau of the Fifth Column... A - QUOTE "When my daughter was 10-ish we were shopping at WalMart. When we got to the truck I realized I hadn’t paid for the Tide sitting on the bottom rack of the cart. We went back in and paid for it. The cashier said, “Wow, I can’t believe you came back. Nobody does that, thank you.” I had no idea how that ONE instance would affect her. She’s 23 and still brings it up. Lead by example. The other important thing I did was teach her to think for herself. I didn’t give her the answers. We either talked about it or I told her to do her research and find the answer. The rest is up to them. Just let them know that NO MATTER WHAT, you will love them and be there for them."
