A child is ONLY as great as their foundation. I learned a lot from my father and male role models in my family growing up, as well as my mother and the women in my family and I'm not a perfect parent, but I do my best to give my son LOVE and teach him how to have LOVE and respect for others! It doesn't take much. Children are quick learners and very receptive to learning and listening when they know you truly LOVE them and encourage their continued growth!
“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky
