    By living strong moral values before you teach them.  Our best teachers are others actions.

    They will repeat what they see and hear. Raising a child in church is so much more vital in this day and time. The world isn't what it was when we were children. So much unnecessary evil in the world today. God help us and the children.

    By setting the example and talking, talking, talking with your kids. Open dialogue and discipline seem to be missing these days.

    To many kids are spending their time alone in their rooms with their electronic toys while parents are chewing their nails in the living room wondering what they are up to these days.

    I think the best and most effective way would be to teach or lead by example.  If parents took there children to church instead of just sending them, and then lived a lifestyle conducive to the strong moral values they desired, the children would realize the true value and see for themselves the difference in right and wrong morals in society...

    Dear Craan I think first of all we should ourselves learn moral values as we are the role models for our kids and they they will automatically learn every thing by following us.

    Students learn from actions.  It is important that parents not only talk about the moral values they want their children to inherit, but also model them on a daily basis.  In my opinion, consistency is very important for kids when it comes to their learning moral values - if there are television shows, video games, songs etc. which show values which are different than the ones you are trying to instill, then those are probably not media your child should be watching/using.

    It is also important that the people your children are spending their time with model values which are consistent with yours.  Obviously, it is not possible for your child to never encounter someone with different moral values than your own (and that's probably a good thing!) But if someone is taking care of or around your child on a regular basis, then I believe it is important for that person's values and yours to be in general accordance.  I also think its important to discuss moral values with children from the time they are young, they are more likely to take on those values themselves as they grow if it is something they understand and believe than if it feels as though it were forced upon them.

    I suggest living by example to the kids makes a lot of difference apart from just telling them as said by others. Children learn a great deal from their parents as the first authority in their lives. Parenthood is a demanding full time job that calls for self sacrifice and avoiding things that may not reflect well on the child. The Bible says in Proverbs 22:6 'Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will turn depart from it.'

    Thanks for asking such an important question.

    We can teach kids values by being a role model to them and always to have an open communication. We should always give and spend quality time to them and show how much we love and care for them.

    We parents are the best model to our children so if we behave in such good moral values our children for sure will do the same and if they will be entering an unknown environment or new to them guide them well and explain everything that they need to know about, like why did his classmate do this or do that is that the right thing to do?Why is he/she could say bad words and i cant.Then you should always have a well concrete explanation for everything in a manner that your child would really understand.
