55. Seriously. This is sending a strong message to kids.
Actually a couple messages. And one of those messages is that really there are certain things that everybody says you shouldn't do. But actually, everybody does all that stuff. It is normal to talk about what is right and wrong, and then violate those rules behind closed doors.
