Planting and Building: Personal Example

“Parents’ greatest responsibility is to serve as an example. Every child naturally wants to identify with his parents and imitate them. If their personal example is good, and if the relationship between the parents and the child is healthy, a warm and heartfelt relationship, then a boy will naturally want to be like his father and a girl will naturally want to be like her mother… If parents demand of their children things that they themselves aren’t doing, they risk corrupting the children entirely.”

-Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe, PLANTING AND BUILDING, p. 31
