Be consistent and straight as much as you can. I know as working parents, we tend to get busy and become overwhelmed. Our kids end up getting our exhausted attention. But they need more to keep them straight. Be a good example, be very aware of what you say to them and how you say it, they're paying attention. No, we are not perfect; but when they're too far gone it's near impossible to get them back.
Reign them in today and remind them how much you care for, and love them. They need gentle reminders at times. Have a flourishing and blessed day!
