Teaching Children Virtues and Value

Updated on December 2, 2007

Teaching Children Virtues & Values

Children are the pillars of our tomorrow is a statement that is repeated time and again. And it is an axiom; they are our pillars of the coming time. But then do we nurture them into becoming healthy human beings? By healthy human beings here is not meant the physical well being, but the good human being. And how do you define a good human being? One with virtues and values that keeps them in the realm of working towards the benefit of humanity.

How can children imbibe within themselves the virtues and values? Well, this is the primary responsibility of parents and other immediate family members, followed by school authorities. The values and virtues of an individual is sown in their childhood and nurtured as they grow up. After all nobody is born a criminal, it is what they become as result of what they gain from their surroundings.

Depending on the way we bring up our children, we decide our own future. It is vital that in the formative years we give them quality time and attention. We teach them to discriminate between the good, bad and the ugly. WE have to inculcate into them positive emotions like love and compassion and teach them actions of kindness and generosity. At the same time we have to help them do way with the negatives of hatred, anger, jealousy, selfishness, etc.

Your child is like a plant. You sow the seeds and also reap the benefits of its growth and development. First and foremost you as a parent have to realize your responsibility in nurturing a child to growing into a good human being. And it is just not upto anyone of the parents, but both together to inculcate the values and virtues into your child.

      Children are gifts form God. But they are not able to live this reality when they are neglected as a child.When they are not loved to the extent that correction and reminders of what is good and what is evil is inculcated and the good has to be chosen in every little things they do, thy will fail to be in touch with what is sacred in them. Thus, parents' wholistic formation for their children is very vital. They are called both to be a parent and a teacher to every child born in their family. may they be able to respond to this divine calling.

      In today's world it is very difficult without both parents complete devotion to what a family really is? Dad may just have to do the dishes..go to the school meetings..help with bathing...do some laundry,,hey even vacuum..When both parents have to work it takes much more effort on both of them...and I even see still one parent taking more on then the other...

      I do childcare for a living and take babies from 4 mos. on. They get a one on one dailey dose of love and care...I just hope I am helping in some way...It is so important for them...and when both parents have so much devotion to their jobs something is denied the child.....oh the good ole days...G-Ma :O)

      Son three is a secondary school teacher of 18 years and he claims there are many parents doing nothing about bringing their children up correctly and doing the right thing for their future blessing.

      They expect the school teacher to do home teaching.
