How to make your children good people in 16 points

1. Upon entering your home, greet your children with a hug. This should help develop their sense of love and mercy.

2. Be kind to your neighbors and never slander. Never speak ill of other drivers while driving. Your children listen, absorb and imitate.

3. When you call your parents, encourage your children to talk to them. Likewise, when you visit your parents, take your children with you, the more they see you taking care of your parents, the more they will learn to take care of you.

4. When you take them in the car, for example to school, do not always put albums or CDs (even if they are good CDs!) But rather tell them stories about yourself. It will have a much bigger impact, believe me!

5. Read to them one verse from the Holy Book per day. It doesn't take a long time, but it has a very big effect on building strong bonds and knowing God as well as wonderful memories.

6. Style your hair, brush your teeth and wear presentable clothes, even if you stay at home and do not go out during the day; they need to learn that keeping clean and dressed has nothing to do with going outside!

7. Try not to blame them for every word or action they say or do. Learn to override and let go a few times. This builds their self-confidence.

8. Ask your children for their permission before entering their room. Don't just knock and then walk in, but wait for them to verbally give you permission to do so first. They will learn to do the same before entering your room.

9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Asking for forgiveness teaches them to be humble and polite.

10. Don't be sarcastic or make fun of their opinions and feelings, even "that's not what you meant" and "that was just a joke". It really hurts.

11. Respect the privacy of your children. It's important for their self-esteem.

12. Don't expect them to listen or learn the first time. Don't take it personally. Be patient and consistent.

13. Play with them. Let them enjoy and enjoy your company. They will remember all of this as they grow older.

14. Be firm. If they need to be reprimanded, please do so. Correct their mistakes right away. Never say "oh, he's just a kid" or "he'll learn as he grows up". No! Now is the time to learn. If they don't learn now, they will never learn.

15. Teach them to be patient and grateful. Don't give them everything they ask for. Stick to your limits. Refuse certain things even if you have the capacity to give them to them. And teach them to say "thank you". Tell them to thank God for everything.

16. Finally, always pray for them, from the bottom of your heart.
