This is a must-watch video, for anyone who is a parent or contemplating having a child.

You may not think that your actions have consequences, but they do, especially when seen by a child, who views you as a role model. Do drugs? They'll think it's okay. Smoke? Yep, they see it as alright. Scream at or abuse your partner? Sure, it must be fine. Children see, children do.

Have a look at this powerful video of adults in action, with a child mimicking their behavior. It's scary, but sobering. If you want to stop the cycle of abuse, it has to start with YOU.
