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.

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.
