I am a parent who tells my children don't do as I do, but do as I say -- Am I a Hypocrite?

Hypothetically (because I am not a parent), if I was a wild and crazy teenager, and drank alcohol, smoked dope, was lazy with school work, no motivation -- and I don't want my children doing what I did, but I want them to have their act together a lot more than I did. Am I a Hypocrite for not letting them experience some partying, get it out of their system, or too strict in making them stay on the straight and narrow path to do better than I did?

    Thank you for a wonderful comment. I'm not a parent, but I am sure you are a great mom to have and your kids are fortunate.
