Parenting Advice from Phil and Claire

From this week's Modern Family:

Claire: Your kids don't need to know who you were before you had them. They need to know who you wish you were and they need to try to live up to THAT person. They're gonna fall short, but better they fall short of the fake you than the real you.

Phil: Which is why we don't hide anything.

Claire: That is the opposite of what I just said.

Phil: I was not listening.
