What character trait do you most wish to see in your child/children?
Of course there are many character traits that define a person. If you had to choose one (among the many) that you regard as most important and which you would most wish to see in your child or children, what will that be?
I hope that my future children will be, above all else, loving. I think so many other wonderful character traits grow out of this - honesty, loyalty, kindness, and courage.
I am a stickler for honesty. I have tried to impress upon my children how important it is to be honest as well as setting exceptionally high personal and moral standards for themselves.
Being kind to others. That's what I taught my children and they always help others in need.
I taught my children to be respectful and kind to others.
I would like my children to be respectful and honest. There is so much dishonesty out there today.
When I have a child I hope he or she is relentless in his or her pursuit for knowledge and wisdom. I just want him/her to voluntarily want to accumulate information on the world he or she lives in so he or she might find a way to better it for him or herself and others.
I would like my kids to be HONEST, KIND HEARTED, &
I Realy want them to be WELL BEHAVED.
Never give up on anything he will do and don't stop learning
It has come in different descriptions from different people i.e. loving, kindness, helpful etc but I'm so glad to see the reaffirmation of the essence of being human. I have always privately obsessed that my kids will grow up to be SELFLESS, grasping that love involves sacrifice, not wanting or expecting anything back and eschewing any instincts of selfishness which I regard to be one of the worst character traits in a human being.
Well I would like them to be confident in themselves (but not to the point of arrogance!) - just because I never really had that much confidence myself and I know how it can hold you back in life.
I don't want and I hope that my children never become Pharisees.
i think my child become honest, king hearted, and truthful person..
Intelligence. I know this probably sounds bad, but if I am a good parent and my child is intelligent I believe I can teach them other good traits. I strongly believe in motivating somebody to think for themselves and understand why they do things the way they do them. In order for them to understand why they should be nice, respectful, honest, and many other traits they need to have some sort of intelligence. Then not only will they have the ability to become a wonderful person without it being forced onto them, but they will also make good educated choices and understand exactly why they are who they are. A trait that I would be proud to see a child use and grow with!
I would choose love over any other character traits. I want my children to grow up loving themselves and staying positive as well as loving others and treating people right.
Foresight..! The ability to be wise and see the logic or tragedy of what is coming before them, before they allow themselves to be enveloped by it! This could be as simple as not getting into the car with a friend after a party, to which school to choose, to where they will buy their home, to what kind of women will be their wife.
Caution, and foresight....but not to an extreme degree...that is the balanced trait I wish upon my children.
i would like them to be religious.
if someone follows religion he/she will have all good character traits
Kindness, Respectfulness, and a Thirst for Knowledge...
I want them to be pet lover and open minded. I hope they will not be the children of tomorrow who'll just gonna leave us when they got their own.
I haven't children, but I would choose being observant if it is a character trait. Otherwise being fair.
My daughters are 22 & 26 and are practically perfect (by their own doing). I would like them to have more courage to be prepared for whatever life tosses at them. I would like them to use their voice more and be heard, not be a wallflower (be more like their mama).
As you agree, there are a number of traits which every parent want to be present in their children. If asked for priority, my children should be caring for those who are uncared, who are thrown out by their dear ones, who are helpless.
Well I am still single but i wish when i have my children they will know the following things like:
1. Respect to your elders.
2. Be polite
4. Loyal for his/her family as well as for their country
So that they will become a good well civilized human being for his/her family well as for their country too.
Wisdom. I'd say love, honesty, clear vision, kindness but that first word sums it up for me.
I hope he would be ATTENTIVE. The world has everything for him to learn he or she just need to receptive and pay attention.
I hope they have good values- family and loved ones over wealth and appearance. I hope they are accepting of all people regardless of things like education and lifestyle.

Why do parents get upset that their child/children have lied to them? Why was it okay for them to lie on their behalf? Do you as a parent firmly believe it's a difference between a little white lie, a good lie, or a partial lie?

If you could change the age at which you had your child/children, would you?I had my child at 21 years old, and I love her more than anything in the world, but there are times I think I'm missing out on a large part of growing up. My mom didn't have children until she was 30 and she said she...

Have you tried your best to grow up your child/children in the right way, yet they turned out bad ?I know some parents may have tired their best and do everything to see their children follow the right part. Yet when they grew up they chose their own path some not pleasing to their parent's or God....

Do you respect your child/ children? How much?As elders, we 'expect' respect from our children/ youngsters. But do we respect them back? Do we get down to their level and try to understand what they have to say? How many times have we overlooked a child's need to speak out? Are we really respecting...

Why do people who can't have children hate others? As if they took their right to have a child.I am a proud mother of 5 (I'm done!) and love for people to come around my children and enjoy themselves. What I do not understand is why the rude side comments have to be made because I chose to have 5...
