1. Teaching Children to be Responsible
Teaching children responsibility to children is important. make children able to take responsibility for all the actions they take. Thus, this habit is expected to be embedded until the child is an adult so that they will appreciate life more and respect other people. For example, when a child plays with his toys and starts flooding his room with toys. After he has finished playing, ask the child to return to tidying the room back to its original state. Things like this might be considered trivial, it’s just that if not taught since childhood, this might be bad for children.
The next thing you should teach your little one is manners or good behavior. Look around you, you will find that nowadays it is not only children who do not know the meaning of courtesy, even adults sometimes do not understand it. Children always learn from wherever they can, both from their environment and within their families. For this reason, it is very important to show good attitude and courtesy so that they can learn to follow these behaviors. In addition, don’t forget to always use the words ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, this is to familiarize children so that they have a polite attitude.
