Commend on your child’s good deeds and accomplishments. Giving them praise can make them realize that they can be dependable on doing things without being told or reminded.

To show in action what is the meaning of empathy, considerate and polite toward others can inspire them to do the same.

Spend time to listen respectfully to their ideas and feelings by always opening the channels of communications and giving them the freedom to speak their minds, so you can help them set goals.

Often display love, warmth, support, encouragement, and consistency toward your children. Participate in their interests, hobbies and other activities that need your support.

Set house rules and reasonable standards for you and your children to live by. Divide house chores and work together on family tasks and projects.

Teaching kids the value of money and how to spend it wisely. Let them accompany you in doing the grocery for them to learn how to budget money too.

Teaching them the importance of time management and being organized.

Certainly, your children will adopt the values you demonstrate daily.
