The Importance of Values

As parents we influence many aspects of our children’s lives.  Our own moral values shape what we want our children to believe in and adopt in their own lives.

A strong moral compass will be the foundation for good decision making as our little ones enter adolescence.

In Planting My Values I talk about some of the values that I believe children should conquer on their journeys of self-discovery.

Here is a sampling:

  • Honesty
  • Manners
  • Empathy
  • Respect
  • Gratitude

What values do you want to instill in your children?
