I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Do you want your child to have good character?

on October 27, 2014

If you want your child to have good character, you have to teach them solid moral values and then live what you teach.  Words are not enough, they don’t always teach children how to have good character.  Your actions can sometimes contradict your words, so you have to be of strong character yourself and teach them by example.

Character can be defined as the way someone thinks, feels, and behaves.  It is someone’s personality and the mental and moral qualities that are built into an individual.

It is important that parents teach their children right from wrong and good from bad.   It is important that they can distinguish appropriate behaviour from inappropriate behaviour.  It is important that they have strong beliefs and build confidence in themselves.  People with strong character are not easily swayed and they will hold steadfast to their beliefs.

An excellent way to help your children build good character is to get them involved in serving others.  Service teaches humility.  Service helps us learn the value of helping others. Service helps people feel good about themselves.  Service has proven to benefit your physical, mental and spiritual health.

But don’t just send your children out to do service by themselves.  Go with them and work beside them.  It makes you a better person and you are setting a wonderful example.
