The most important valeus I have tried to instill in my kids are, honesty, compassion and understanding. My kids have a very good life and don't go without much, however I don't want them to grow up and not appreciate what they have, look down on others who have less, or forget that their are people suffering in the world. I know I am doing a good job because when Katrina hit my oldest ( who was 10 at the time) was in tears because she was not allowed to go help with the cleanup efforts when her grandpa volunteered. I would have let her, but her age was a factor.

I agree with you in everything. It's also those values that I try to teach mine. I always told them that I will very much angry with them if they lied than if they make something wrong. I also try always that they try to understand the others when they become angry with something, that they think about the reason or reasons that someone had to do something, that they should try to imagine themselves in the others situation.

Well as a parent I believe that the most important values you should teach your children are Love, Respect, Honesty, Sharing, Caring, Family loyalty, kindness to other, trust, Confidence, Self Respect, and humbleness. These are the most important values to teach a child to me.

It is important to teach our kids so many things. Howeve, I think that there are 3 or 4 thigs that you have to teach them as a parent. These are : honesty,trust, respect for others, and a love for God,country, and others. It is important that they know how to love unconditionally too and I truly belive that only a parent can teach a child that. So many kids these days don't know anything about respect and so many kids have things handed to them and have no idea as to how to appreciate anything. I see this a lot in the younger kids that I work with and they also have no work ethics. However, I see some kids who have better work ethics than some adults and those are the kids that I figure have been taught well at home.

I agree with almost every one else. Respect is the first thing that parents should teach their children. Respect for themselves and others. It is also probably the hardest thing to instill in a child especially as he grows into his teen years. Honesty and self value are also important to teach your children.
