Ever found yourself yelling at your kids to stop yelling? Funny isn’t it? Sometimes I see that parenting and hypocrisy go hand in hand. I’m constantly asking my child not to lie to me, but around certain parenting corners, I have my own little white lies. Like the magic wand one that crashed and burned.
