I thought this was a funny-sad photo.
This dad took his two kids (twins?) out to eat.
The eatery is Hooters.
The young, attractive, scantily clad waitresses in the orange shorts were serving them.
It may be fine for the adult, but it didn’t seem so okay for the little kids.
Not that I’m so Mr. Perfect, but couldn’t help reflect that what we teach our children is important.
This wasn’t Ronald McDonald’s, Subway, or Chipotle.
What was the lessons for these kids?
I remember when I would argue with my dad (still to this day) about religion and seeing seemingly “religious” people do things wrong (sometimes terribly wrong), and he would say to me, “You be the example!”
Maybe that’s sort of the point–is that the way we live is the lessons we showcase to others.
Each of us has the opportunity to lead by example…that’s what leadership fundamentally is.
