Hi Roy- Excellent observations. Reminds me of the instructions before a plane flight. Put your oxygen mask on first, otherwise you're unable to help others. If parents don't take care of their health, they're no good to their kids. However, having been in law enforcement over 26 years, I encountered parents who put themselves above their kids in every way. Partying came first. TV came first. Raising healthy, well-adjusted kids takes love, time, effort, and sacrifice. This doesn't mean becoming a helicopter parent, just a loving and engaged one. Thanks for reading!
