What values and belief system did your mother or father instill in you that you still apply today?
Are there any specific virtues that you strongly support within your own family?
My parents had strengths and weakness like all people do but one thing they never waivered in was their work ethic. I watched and learned and I will hopefully pass this on to my children as well.
My parents instilled in me that hard work pays off. Mom would also tell me that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. Those values have carried me down through the years and now I pass those same values down to my children.
my late fathers work ethics, monetory uncorruptability and his generosity is what i strongly support, look up to and hope to continue.
My parents have always been religious....they inculcated this belief in me... i still follow the tradition.
I can tell you, it is not patience or kindness. The ones that are still instilled consists in the fruit of the Spirit, the fact that there is a God, that if you want to learn a subject then learn everything you can about it, to help others, to actually have a heart (this does not mean kindness), you can get along with anyone if you REALLY want to, and that love does exist.
Respect others, always be polite. basically treat others how you would want to be treated. Manner don't cost anything as my parents say.
Do not judge. My mom used to say that we had no right to pass judgement until we'd "walked in their moccasins" ourselves.
Life lesson from our parents can be invaluable. They frame us and help us with raising our own children. Wisdom, love, disciple: all play a role in raising a child. Sometimes we need to listen to others. For the author, her mother was her inspiration for raising two great kids. read more
My mother said that I could do anything I wanted to in this world, AS LONG as I did not hurt anyone by doing it.
My father said that I could do anything in this world IF I focused on it, worked at it, and If I really wanted it.
A sense of honor, a sense of determination, and a sense of self. These are the most important.
Don't steal, don't lie, don't hurt others intentionally. Work hard, give generously, and try to save.
My work ethic. They taught me, you go to work everyday unless your deathly ill, you don't call in, be on time, and you work hard. But that's really the only value they instilled, all the other ones they taught me, I've realized were not right. But that's another question lol
There were many values that were instilled within me by my parents that I apply till this day. But the most influential one is to help others. Yes. I love to help others even in the most difficult situations. I can’t see people suffering and wish if I could have helped all the ones who are helpless!! My parents, especially my father was always intended to help other people in any way he could. He helped the poor relatives money and helped people physically who needed physical help. He hardly left any chance of helping anyone if it was within his capability. This quality of my father greatly influenced me. My mother also backed it and thus I was taught this quality to a great extent. So I practiced this right from my young age. I feel all of us should try to do this to some extent. This will be pretty helpful to build up a good and wonderful society. The reasons behind the destruction of modern society are many. But not helping others is a prime reason. We don’t feel for others; even for our closest ones. By helping others we can become good to others and also to the society.
