      That’s an odd argument, since there are many things that are allowed for adults and not for kids, and nobody views this as hypocritical.

      Howso? If I tell my 5 year old “You can’t play with a tablet at the dinner table” while sitting there staring at my phone, they’re rightfully gonna be pissed at the double standard. “Do as I say, not as I do” is a shit parenting tactic.

      Kids have an acute sense of fairness that gets subjugated out of them if you don’t foster it.

      Just because it’s legal for me to drink alcohol doesn’t make it less hypocritical to drink one while lecturing about how bad it is for you.
