I certainly don't think I can have a serious discussion on why smoking isn't a good idea, even though the rest of this relatives (INCLUDING DN'S) do, not at his age. Maybe at 5, when I start with the condom talks?

Hi imp

Apparently the Japanese have a saying that goes something like:

Your children don't become what you want them to be, they become what you are.

I think if you (and hopefully DN?) don't smoke then you're already setting the best example that you can.


p.s. If anyone who reads this takes umbrage with the saying and wants to point out that they didn't end up like their parents, please take it up with the Japanese, not with me. ;)
