What children should know


What Children Should Know




























Growing up my parents often taught me alot of valuable things that they wanted me to

learn , even as I grew older some of the things that they had taught me are still a big part

of my life today.


This is why it is very important as a guardian or a parent to teach these values as they will

help boost and promote ourchildren to grow up and be better people, of course it is also

mandatory for us to show our children how to read which is also important. However there

are somethings that have to be taught specifically by us as services such as schools may

not do it adequately.



As kids get to grow up it is our responsibility to shoe them how they should grow because

we are their first teachers that  they ever meet, that being said we have to set a good

example for them in order for them to be aspire to become better people.Here are seven

things that you might want to show them as they grow up, of course they might be

somethings I might have missed but this list will sort of give you a few ideas on the kinds

of things you need to impart in them.




1. Children Should Be Self Confident


Being confident in your ability is a very important tool to have if you want to be

successful in whatever you are doing, this is why as their guardians we must try by all

means to make sure that we show them how to become more self confident at a very

young age.


Showing them this at a very small age will allow them to build on this as they grow older

making them more likely to be successful in the things that they do, this will also translate

into the school work they do as well as in the decisions they make


Confidence can also bring about self motivation which will enable them to peruse

whatever they would want to without having any doubts or even feeling the need to give

up easily on whatever they are doing, that being said always make sure that you give

them enough credit in everything they are participating be it in a school play , test , sports

and any other events.


Always let them know that you will always be there to support them and even if they don’t

perform that great try to encourage them as much as possible this really helps in a boost

in confidence.


This small boost in confidence will make your child believe in themselves more and make

them thrive to be the best they can be.




















2. Children Should Value Hard Work


Another very important thing that kids need to know as they grow is learning the

importance of working hard, hard work is the key that opens doors to many

opportunities in life and is usually the difference between the people that make it and

those that don’t.


Teaching them this skill will enable them to learn how to put in alot of effort in whatever it is

that they are doing and as it has been mentioned earlier parents are a child’s first teacher,

that being said its important that we lead by example it can be in terms of the way we stay

committed to our work or even the way we show effort in the way we do things at home.


Leading by example will definitely make the young ones aspire to work just as hard as

their role models do , However its  important not to force your them into this but as it may

take a while for them to do find the value of it.Forcing them into working hard might just

cause them to reject the whole thing all together which is not what you want as a guardian

, but slowly show them the value that they can gain from it as this will help to drive the

point home.That being said hard work is a virtue that has to be made part of them,

children usually learn by either seeing or hearing then repeating making it your

responsibility to be the best role model you can be.




3. Teach Your Children About God


I find this point extremely essential because most parents nowhere days might not actually

think that it an an impact and often tend to underrate it, teaching children how to be God

fearing at a young age is something which can impact the way the live even as they get

older and continue to develop.


Being a Christian I feel like most of the time we often neglect our children on this point, so

it is very important to spend time with our children and teach them the word of God. Its just

as the Lord said we have to show them the right path in which they should grow and one

good way to do this as mentioned previously is by leading by example, it is also very

essential to encourage them to read the bible more frequently in order to enable them to

start reading it on there own.


Reading them fun and adventurous stories from they by will also help them want to

explore more about the bible, it is very essential to make learning a fun experience as this

will make it more memorable for them and also create a valuable bond between you and

them which does come in handy.


This bond will make them more free to talk to you about things which they might be going

through which will allow you to provide the right amount of advice to help stir them in the

right direction, however am not here to change your views on religion but I believe this

point is critical and you can also apply it to your own faith if you like to try.


Keeping children closer to God will also help them to find there purpose in life sooner

which will help them stay out of trouble.



















4. Teach Them How To Be Respectful


Coming from a background were I was always told to respectful to the elderly when I was

young encouraged me to try and be more be more at all times, this is why I feel young

ones should know to become respectful as they are growing up.


Being respectful not only allows you to become more polite like in my case but also affect

the way the act even when they are out on their own, this also allows them to show and

have respect for what the have been given this to is something they must learn.


It also helps children become well behaved and this will lead show humbleness as well as

kindness even to people they have just meet, humbleness and kindness are traits that

have to be taught to them.


Showing them these values will help them be mindful of what they say to others as well as

how their actions that will affect others. One easy and common way of doing this is

teaching children how to always say please and thank you every time, although it might

seem small and not be much as they use it more frequently the more likely they are to

adopt these traits.


Its on parents to provide the right kind of content which will help them grow well this can

be either through the make sure they watch appropriate tv shows,movies,books or even

through the things that they hear. Listening to the appropriate things will help them build

their character quite alot and methods like these have to be utilized more often.


The main thing that has to be gotten from this is that we have to be mindful of the

information that we make our children listen to , in order to make effectively teach

them these values you must be able to promote the right kind of content which will

help develop their character.




5. Teach Your Children About Honesty


When parenting it is always nice to make sure that your child will stay honest to you even

when they have done something that is wrong, hence making this a more valid reason as

to why it should be learnt by children from a young age.


Honesty gives young ones the ability to stay true and come clean, however it is important

that even as mistakes happen which they will try to keep a level head. Most of the time

children become dishonest with their parents because of the harness they might

experience, however this doesn’t mean that you should be soft on the but it means you

should be able to find a way in which you can handle the situationwithout them fearing to

come clean.


If they grow up to be dishonest it will be much harder for them to be accountable for there

actions which makes it harder for them to stay out of trouble, however being accountable

for their actions will allow them to stay truthful at all times. Keeping them truthful from a

young age will allow them to stick to it even as they get older.




















6. Kids Must Know How To Be  Patience


Teaching your child how to become patient might be challenging at first but its just one of

those things which you’ll have to do as a parent, teaching children how to be patient is

very essential.


This allows children to be content with what the have and learn that good things come to

those who wait, however one thing to note is that patience comes with time and practise

which is ironic because teaching it requires you to have it so you’ll have to display

patience as well.


If this is learnt it will help them stay calm and content even when things are not going the

way they would like them to go which is very good as this will prevent them from making

decisions that the would regret, helping them learn this trait would be a good way to go.


Another thing to add is that having patience also brings about gratitude making your child

less envious of what others may have, which can really go a long way when trying to

model your child to become a better person.




7.  Teaching The Importance Of Family


Lastly showing them how to acknowledge the importance of family I think is on of the most

valuable things that parents should be able to educate their children on, as their guardians

we should be able to always show them the much needed love and support.


Showing them them an adequate amount of love and care will help them realize just how

essential family actually is, this is why it is very useful and a good practise to set aside a

particular day in the week in which you spend some quality time as a family.


This quality time can be used to build a bond between the parents and the children, you

can spend it by either going on a family trip or even by playing fun and interactive games

in which everyone has to participate.


If this is done more frequently this will not only increase the strength of the bond between

the you and your young ones but also strength the bond they have as siblings which can

be very vital when ensuring that all members stay in contact even as they get older, these

activities help to make siblings look out for each other.




In ending this post the key things to note are that showing your child valuable morals does

in fact enable them to become much better people in society, however these morals have

to be taught and it is up to us as the elderly people in their lives to help in part these 

values.Imparting these things does take sometime to do but with the right amount of effort 

you will be able to add more value to in their lives, using the appropriate resources is very

important as children are easily impacted by what they see or hear.


Leading by example is one of the key things you might need in order to achieve this

because the way you do things now will determine whether your child will aspire to be

more like you, remember you are the child's first teacher so they will want to learn most of

the things from you so just try your best to be the best role model you can.
