    Good question.  I don't know that I have a perfect answer but I do think an important lesson to teach children is that it's okay to be yourself, regardless of what others think.  Also, it's okay to be okay with being yourself - you don't have to feel like you need to be better than what you are.  This isn't to say we shouldn't teach children to be ambitious, but we should emphasize that they should strive to be the best version of themselves they can be, not what everyone else thinks they should be.

    I'm still young and don't have any children but if I had, I'd teach them to never stop learning, never cause anyone pain on purpose and spread happiness and joy everywhere they go smile

    Love your neighbor, as yourself. For it is in loving, that we exhibit the grandest of all human traits.

      I would add to Whonu's thoughts, to know yourself & purpose, know God.  This is the beginning of what really matters in life.

    Great question, raising my three children and teaching children with learning difficulties, I have realised that if I only help children to discover their own unique abilities and persuade them to believe in themselves....I have done my job, however it is the hardest thing to teach:)

    I'd teach them to stay the way they are - people who, for the most part, accept others as they are without imagining all kinds of negative or nasty motives behind a whole lot of things that others say and/or do.  In other words, I'd find a way to teach them to remain their wise,  young, selves; rather than listening to the far-less-wise, bitter, damaged, thinking of a whole lot of people who are older than they are.  I'd teach them that their natural belief that "most people are generally good" is actually the way most people really are; and those who assume the worst in others are actually former children who were failed somewhere along the way.

    I would teach them to question everything and not just follow whatever is taught to them especially when it comes to religion, tradition, customs, etc.
