As parents, what is the MOST important thing to teach our children?
To be honest with own selves is the most important thing to teach our children.
That you love and respect them as a person. Respect their opinion, their right to express themselves, and their ability to make choices. Everything else will follow from there naturally.
Wisdom. That is, wisdom as described by King Solomon throughout the book of Proverbs, which all begins with the fear of the LORD.
So you feel that children need to be taught to be afraid of God?
Fear is used differently in the Bible than our current understanding of the concept.
"Fear" carries a lot of different connotations for different people. We sometimes fear people because they are cruel, uncontrolled, impulsive and capricious. That's not the fear I'm talking about--which calynbana was getting at. (To be continued)

Unfortunately 250 characters is hardly enough to give a satisfactory response. It doesn't help that I tend to be a bit ... wordy. So, I will either need to send you a message or save it for a future hub.

To have a strong mind... There are so many difficulties in life, so many bad things, so much they will need to overcome, that I hope to teach them to persevere always, to endure, to fight back, to never give up... If they have a strong mind and they know who they are, they can do anything...
I would teach my kid to be true to the heart. Have a strong mind and keep to your promises. The rest will include honesty and respect.
To honor and love God. To be loving,respectful, obedient, honest, frugal, hard-working, humble, charitable, courteous at all times. To be morally and spiritually upright even when nobody is watching.
