One of the most challenging places to lead is at home.

If you are a mom or dad, I trust you want what is best for your kids. That being the case, it is easy to default to constantly “reminding” them what they ought to do.

Can I remind YOU of something? … Your kids will follow your example more than they will your advice.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them advice … you should. But your advice better match your life if you expect it to be respected.

By the way, actions speak louder than words at work too.
