Teaching Your Children Values

• Be a good role model. Children pay more attention to what we do than what we say. Teach respect, empathy, and courtesy by example.

•Teach children to consider others before themselves. Emphasize that kindness and selflessness are worthy traits.

•Discuss inappropriate behavior. Provide your child with choices so he or she can avoid it.

•Monitor what your child sees and hears; carefully select the television programs and videos your child watches.

•Discuss problems or situations that might be worrying your child. Communicate understanding and willingness to help.

•Most importantly, give your child a loving, caring home environment.
