As a parent, I know that one of the first rules of parenting is to model the behavior I want to see. “Do as I say, not as I do” is rarely an effective strategy: My children notice even the slightest whiff of double standard between my words and my actions.

I can’t get together with friends and then tell them they’re not allowed to do so.
