Give up your vices, children learn through observation and imitation. Besides gambling, alcohol and drugs can jeopardise your child’s financial security. Smoking, for example, almost always introduces health hazards to your child’s environment. Second-hand smoke has been linked to several respiratory ailments in children. It could also contribute to the early death of a parent. Alcohol and drugs might also introduce health hazards or violence to your child’s environment.
Remember children aren’t ours to own, we are merely caretakers and as such time is limited. Be the change you want to see in the world, and your child will pick up and continue where you left off.
