Are you a perfect example for your children?

February 28 2011
When I got mad today and hit my child "For his own good, "
I reconciled,and then I realized my plight...
Today, I taught my child to fight.

When interrupted by the phone,I said, "tell them I'm not home."
And then I thought, and had to sigh...
Today I taught my child to lie.

I told the tax man what I made,forgetting cash that was paid,
And than I blushed at this sad feat...
Today I taught my child to cheat.

I smugly bought a pirated CD,
But now the bells of shame must peal...
Today I taught my child to steal.

Today I cursed another race,Oh God, protect what I debase,
for now, I fear it is too late...
Today I taught my child to hate.

What are we teaching our Kids?
Are you a perfect example for your children?
