In addition to what bizzymom said, I would also include teaching them about sharing and having compassion for others. They should be taught to take responsibility for their actions, and appreciate their parents and not take them for granted. In fact, to not take anything they have for granted, like having a roof over their head, clothes, food, etc. They should be taught not to be lazy and that hard work pays off, in the end. They should be taught that T.V., video games, Facebook, cell phones, etc are not the end all be all. They should be encouraged to foster their own creativity, instead of solely depending on other people or things to entertain them.
