Teaching values and morals are the first steps towards ensuring that your child will become a responsible human being. Children imbibe thoughts that surround them or which are practiced around them. So, unless you are motivating your child to learn new things or making them understand what teamwork is, they are not going to learn all these morals on their own. So, let’s have a look at some of the best motivational values that you do need to give your child.
- HONESTY CAN WIN ANYTHING
The first and prime value that you should teach your kids is to be honest, no matter what it takes to tell the truth. Yes, sometimes, the fact can hurt someone else or cause chaos, but that will be all. Your kid won’t have to take the support of another lie to cover up for one. And moreover, no good can come out of telling lies.
- BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR OWN ACTIONS
If taught from an early age, your children will learn to be responsible for their actions in their future also. If your kid has broken a cup and upon being asked, if he/she denies, make them understand that no matter what’s the consequences, he/she should take the responsibility of what has been done.
- THREE POLICIES OF LIFE- KINDNESS, POLITENESS, HUMBLENESS
Though almost similar, children should know the importance of these three values. So, make them learn how to be kind to everyone, irrespective of their background and even species. Politeness is one of the best weapons to win a battle or an argument. And also, children should know how to be humble because that gives the impression that they have a soft corner and have imbibed the right morals.
- TO EARN RESPECT, YOU SHOULD FIRST GIVE RESPECT
Respect should be given to everyone, elders and younger ones alike for earning respect from them. Your kid cannot push another younger child just because your child is older than the other one. Don’t make them learn that they should talk politely only with the elders because respect is for everyone.
- UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL
Teamwork can bring glory to everyone’s life, and that’s what parents should teach their children. Nothing can be achieved alone. Even if your kids are studying alone and getting good marks, the notes they are getting is from the teachers. So, indirectly, it’s teamwork. Make them understand that whenever they are grouped with someone else, they should work in a coordinated manner to bring out the best result. After all, sharing means caring!
- BE SATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU HAVE
Most of the kids throw tantrums when they cannot have what they wish for. Stop giving in to their demands and make them learn how to be happy with what they have. So, if they have a small car, teach them how to play with that one till their heart is content. A good picture can be done with a small color box also, and your kid can look good in regular clothes also. There is no need to introduce your kid to the world of extravagance.
- ALWAYS PROVIDE AND SEEK JUSTICE
To be a better person, everyone, including your kid should learn the value of justice. Though the word sounds quite easy, it is not at all easy to learn how to earn righteousness and how to do justice at a young age. But you can start with small things like if your child is seeing someone bullying another kid, he should directly come to you or go to the school administration with a report.
