Teaching Children Values

So much is going on in the world today. So much has changed and our societies in many instances have become much more violent. Our children are being exposed to a  lot of negative influences; on the internet, on the streets, in our schools and even in our homes.
It is our jobs as parents to raise our children to be decent upstanding citizens. This is not an easy task. It is imperative that we teach our children values. They need to understand that they are important; that their existence is no accident, they are here for a reason.
One of the most important thing we need to teach our children is to have self-respect. They also need to have respect for the lives of other people. Too many of our young people are committing crimes and taking the lives of others. They need to understand from an early age, that life is important and that it is wrong to take the life of another.

Respect for other people’s property. Sometimes little things like stealing begins from an early age. The child brings home a book or a pencil or a crayon that belongs to someone else from his or her kindergarten class; the parents see nothing wrong with the child keeping it. That is telling the child that it is okay to take something that is not his or hers and that is stealing.

We need to teach children to set high standards for themselves, to set goals and work towards them. To be always mindful of who they are. To stand up for what they believe in and more importantly to believe in themselves even if others don’t.
