In my book there is a chapter pertaining to kids’ placement in a marriage. Whenever ppl send me pics of their kids/grandkids, I always wish that the little darlings are being brought up in a loving environment. 
Children are much more intelligent than we think. They are damn smart! Especially today’s kids. They see their parents/ grandparents/uncles/ aunts managing relationships and learn from there. If they are intelligent, then they learn from others’ mistakes. If they are not wise, they could end up emulating all the wrongs. 
It is easy for growing up young ones to be attracted towards wealth and power. If the elders wielding wealth and power in their family are wrong examples, then a doomed future beckons impressionable minds. If elders are liars, corrupt, vicious, irresponsible, then the kids will surely pick up those nuances. 
The elders should lead by example. They should be aware that kids are watching/hearing them. Do u protect ur kids from all that? Do you try your best not to set a bad example infront of them? R u careful as to what u speak or do in front of them?
For driving a mere vehicle, we have to pass a test and acquire a license. But for becoming parents we don’t need anything except active sperms and ovums.
