Teach them well

  • Love them; show them love.
  • Always tell them “I love you” as often as possible. Endeavour to be your child’s best friend.
  • Teach your children about God and help them grow spiritually.
  • Teach the importance of education, hard work, integrity, honesty and other virtues.
  • Always talk to/with them and always allow them the freedom to come to you and discuss anything with you!
  • Be good. The children will learn to be good from your actions than from what you tell them. Walk your talk! Children learn more from actions than words.
  • Teach your child the Golden Rule “Do to others as you would love them do to you” and live it yourself.
  • Don’t make promises you cannot keep! Always keep your promises to your children.
  • Give your child time and full attention whenever needed or when an opportunity occurs. Your time remains the best investment you can make on your children. Never interrupt your youngster when he is sharing a story with you. Listen patiently.
  • Get involved in your child’s school and extracurricular activities. Be sure to participate in your child’s school activities and be an active member of the school’s PTA.
  • Monitor your child’s school activities, the teachers, the friends and maids. Take action if you aren’t happy with any of them.
  • Be proud of your child’s achievements no matter how small or modest. Don’t negatively compare him or her with other children. They are different. Always give your child a second chance whenever he or she falters.
  • Make your child feel important by asking for his or her opinion, especially on issues and things concerning them.
  • Avoid shouting and scolding your child at every opportunity. Talk quietly and advise with love. It is best “to guide your child through life instead of pushing him through it.”
  • Learn to correct your child with love and refrain from bringing up your youngster’s past mistakes when admonishing him or her over a wrong done. Learn nonviolent ways of disciplining your child.
  • Never go to bed while angry at your youngster. Resolve every issue with your child in a way that shows love and care. Let your children know that an argument is natural and hug them after each one.
  • Everybody deserves respect…even your little kid. Always be courteous and kind to your child. Learn to compliment your kid in front of his friends.
  • Teach you kid that it is okay to be different from others. After all, some of the greatest among us have been unique.
  • Teach your child or ward to believe in himself or herself and never, ever laugh at or ridicule your child’s dreams. Help the child build positive self esteem.
  • Never compare your kid with others. Teach your child that it is OK to be different. Teach your children that boys and girls are equal. Teach them also that the races are equal.
  • Teach them all they need to know about sex, drugs, smoking at the appropriate time. Let them know that it is OK to say NO to evil and crime.
