As parents it is our job to teach our children to love. Hate in born and bred. It is a vicious cycle that can end with us. What we teach our children defines us. Let's teach them to love, only love. Fat, short, skinny, tall, black, white, gay, straight, ugly, beautiful, nerdy, goth... just love them all. Our children need to understand that they are entitled to their individuality... that they are embraced and appreciated for WHO THEY ARE, not who we think they should be. Lead by example... love by example and your children will LIVE by your example.
