1️⃣If you drop someone home, don’t just take off like you are racing in formula1, wait to see them get safely in the building.
2️⃣If you are finishing an event late (social or professional) ensure you offer to walk a lady to her car / taxi / etc. safely. Don’t insist more than twice and ensure you mention is just to ensure she is safe.
3️⃣ if you are inviting her out than you should ensure she gets picked up and gets dropped off safely. (Same with guests of all genders not just ladies)

1️⃣In front of the law you are the last “responsible adult“ that saw this person. If in between you dropping them out of your car and their home something happens .. you will be questioned and held responsible. So be responsible!
2️⃣This shows character, responsibility for your actions as an adult, integrity, care and courage. We could use harvesting some more of those values in our society.

Whenever there is a birthday party, ensure your child gets involved in his/ her duties as a host(ess) by receiving guests and walking them to the door. When young, this can be done assisted by his/ her parents but as the child grows older than more responsibility like ensuring they get a message when their friend got home; picking a girl up and dropping her back to her parents home should be encouraged.
Of course remembering that children will always follow your example not what you say, taking your spouse on a date night can show your children how things should be done. Being a parent is a great responsibility for the foundations you are setting and is not about how you liked it or your standards that you had the right to chose, but about your child and all the humans he will impact in his journey. So set a good foundation for his future relationships in life.
These will go a long way in whom our children will become as adults and that reality will stare us in the face soon enough.
Always be kind,
