The double standard better known as ''Do as I say not as I do!'' This is a subject area many couples that I see in counseling express emphatically. Sometimes children will exclaim the same sentiment relative to their parents. Smoking, be it tobacco or cannabis, has often been a sore subject in families. ''You smoked, why can't I?'' ''It's bad for you, all the studies say so!'' ''Yeah, so how come you did or still do it?'' Social scientists state, ''You have to be consistent.'' That genius worked well for a long time until a radical element asked ''What does consistent mean?'' Back to the drawing board!
