As a kids' author of a lovely girl who has given her two darling grandchildren, she learned neat life lessons she desires to share with you!

1. Good Kids Listen to Parents and Teachers

You’re probably wondering good, obedient kid, huh, of course; I know I'm good, but what does obediently mean, anyhow? I hear when I want to.

Obedience, in the eyes of an adult, is the most important thing for a child and so is submissiveness. You are at an advantage for parents and older folk love seeing every child’s goodness and exceedingly love already. The child may need some direction, though, if things aren't going right at home, or in school.

A good child is likable and lovable for his humor and caring nature. Good children do well in school and are thoughtful. They listen to their parents and do not curse or back talk to the elders. They are gentle and speak with respect.

Good children have respect for those who are older, and they set fine examples for their peers with younger sisters and brothers. They don't hang out in an alleyway, nor do they pick on children who are different.

2. Good Children Do Their Homework and Weekly Chores

Virtuous children strive to become the best they can possibly be! They have goals to succeed in things they are interested in and fair well in their class subjects. For sure, they aim to please and forever do their homework, class assignments and weekly chores. Pleasant children may enjoy one or more hobbies, and good kids love to make time to play outdoors. They play with the children in their neighborhood and usually are involved in a competitive sport or art project, such as dance, acting or music. A good child also draws inspiration from their parents and teachers and from certain role-models, and celebrities.

3. A Gem of a Child Keeps Himself Occupied

A good child keeps himself busy with interesting things! A fascination with stamp history, coins, or mystery books will intrigue him to start a collection. He may want to tend a vegetable or flower garden or may enjoy starting to build things such as model airplanes or a miniature dollhouse, for instance. Girls usually enjoy getting involved with sewing, modeling, drawing, writing or reading.

Children who love to do worthwhile things don’t have time to spend ridiculous hours watching television programs. This is because they love to do their chores at home, keep their room tidy and are thinkers of things they learn in school and experience in life. They act upon their experiences too.

4. An Obedient Kid Respects Others.

A good, obedient child also wants to respect and admire his brothers and sisters, along with his cousins and parents and adults. They do not bicker, nor pick a fight to control the situations they cannot handle. They also don't take matters into their own hands, unless instructed to. They speak in ardent tones and look up to people who are older than them habitually. A good child is friendly and does nice things for their family and friends and doesn’t feel jealous of anyone. This happens even if someone has something; they want.

The really good child learns to love God and reads the Holy Scriptures often. They also attend church and have an immeasurable amount of love and care in their hearts for others. They also respect themselves and do not abuse their bodies. And Good Children Don't Ever Talk Back to Teachers or Parents. They humble themselves instead.

5. Good Children Are Proud of Their Accomplishments.

Pleasant children are proud of their accomplishments! They also strive to challenge themselves by entering a writing or drawing contest and spelling or math bees. They perhaps may aim as well, to win a game of chess, Chinese Checkers, cards, or a competitive sport of any type, be it swimming, baseball, basketball, running, gymnastics, etcetera. If sports aren't your fancy, then acting or dance lessons may fare better for you. Nevertheless, do something you love, something you are proud to be a part of.

If you love music, you may want to learn how to play a musical instrument, a piano, guitar or violin for instance. Practice every day to become proficient. In no time you'll be performing in a recital or at a concert hall

6. Agreeable Children Keep Their Books Organized.

Keep your school books organized, and do your best to obtain the finest possible grades in your class work and studies. It’s also exemplary to volunteer your services, whether it’s setting up props for a school play or baking cookies for a party or helping with a special cause.

If someone you know is not feeling well, you can send a get-well card with thoughtful words, or draw a beautiful picture to help him or she feels better.

7. Good Children Dress Neat.

Of course, you want to look your best by dressing accordingly! Your hair will look more put together if it's cropped if you're a boy, and long and tidy if you're a girl. You should wear fashionable clothes that fit nicely, without a gangster rapper look, baggy, over-sized, ripped or mismatched outfits.

Match your clothes and look neat. Brush your teeth and take a shower every day before heading out. Don't forget to keep your strength up by eating a lot of snacks with healthy food.

If you are of age, it's not such a terrible idea to get dinner going for your family, if you are allowed to prepare dinner.

8. Easygoing Children Are Kind and Gentle.

Truthfully, it’s easier for a child to act kind and obedient, then behave obnoxiously with disobedient behavior. Remember, you’ll get into heaps of trouble for the latter.

Being kind and gentle won't cost you anything, simply a pleasant attitude and a stance of gratitude. Feeling grateful and thankful for all you do is the best way to feel kindness in your heart. You'll feel like a terrific kid on your way to accomplishing bigger and more respectable things.
