You have to be observant so that your child does not develop the bad habits at their school. It is the nature of children (human beings) that they remember and learn bad things quickly than the good things.
Your children will share their ideas and thoughts with you, only if you are close to them. You should be emotionally close to your child, not physical closeness.
As a good parent, you want to be effective and your child should learn the good habits instead of bad habits. For this purpose, you should follow the good habits first.
Children learn many things from the parents. For example, you can’t blame your child for smoking, if you have the habit of smoking.
So, the aging parents can parent their children in a better way than the young parent to mold the children to have good life in future.
