"Something inside is hurting you – that’s why you need cigarettes or whiskey, or music turned so fucking loud you can’t think."
"Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong."
American Humane Society (via maninsun)
This is so, so important.
This is so important. When i was a child growing up, the adults in my family thought it was below them to say sorry to me and the children in the family, so I grew up not learning how to say please and thank you and sorry because they taught me to feel like it was shameful to be polite to people cause they never were to us. Just. fucking raise your kids right, parents put their kids through fucking hell and ruin their lives.
