Children usually lie so that they can avoid trouble. This is because many parents start yelling at them when they did something wrong. It is important for parents to not let go your temper and started yelling at them when they lie. Instead, it is advisable to take the time to listen to what they say and make them tell the truth. You can applaud them from telling the truth but also give appropriate punishments for the mistakes they did.

2.Respect

Parents should teach their children to respect other people especially people who are older than them. Parents shall take the lead showing examples for their children as the way they learn is seeing you as a role model for them. Simply by saying “Hello”, “Thank you”, “Please” helps to enlighten up someone else’s mood.

3.Perseverance

Parents shall show never give up attitude to their children. Children at young were more persistent. Falling down a few times and getting back on their feet again. Walking, running, speaking etc. they never give up until they succeed. As they grow older, they give up easily by comparing themselves with others. Losing the confidence in them when someone is better than them. Parents should tell their children that you are proud of their achievements no matter what. Guiding them and encouraging them to move forward when they felt discouraged in life.
