Your baby has passed the toddler years and entered into childhood stage. Your child started to go to school.
You have to teach your school child the primary principles to become a good adult.
You have to teach morals and values which remain throughout the life and ensure success to your children.
Teach your school child to ensure success:
Kindness! Kindness is the important thing to teach your school child.
If you teach your school child about kindness to the point of understanding, the importance of treating others, expecting how to treat them, it can be said that you have taught kindness effectively to your child.
Honesty! It will not be difficult to teach your school child what is right and what is wrong. The difficulty comes when your child learns that you are not always watching his behavior (Child Behavior Problems).
This is where honesty comes into picture. You should show and explain that it is wrong to misbehave whether there is authority figure present or not. Once you are successful in teaching this lesson to your school child, it will exist throughout the life.
Persistence! Even as a parent, giving up sometimes seems to be the best course of action. This is not a good way to achieve great results which is your main objective. You should have quality of never giving up.
It is admirable to keep going despite difficulties. Although persistence remains as an inherent trait, born in child, still you have to teach your school child about the persistence.
Social skills! Teach your school child the importance of social skills. Social interaction provides a relief from daily stresses of life and brings joy. This is a necessary skill to instill in your school child. Proper social skills need to be taught at young age.
Once you teach social skills, it helps to prevent violent outcome among children as well as adults. There are varying degrees of social skills depending on child’s personality but the principles of social interaction are taught. Those are “thank you”, “please” when receiving and requesting.
Value of hard work! Teaching a younger school child the value of hard work might seem embarrassed. You have to teach this lesson through example rather than words. Children are like sponges. They absorb things at alarming rate.
If your school child watches you going to work and providing for the family, your child will remember this example to follow some day.
It does not mean if your child is born with opportunity, he will not learn the value of hard work simply because you are able to sit at home all day while making money. You have to make extra effort in order to teach your school child that success comes from hard work.
