We all grow up seeing our parents, peers, other friends all kind of examples of what you should and should not do as a matter of good value and morals. But morals and norms have evolved a great deal since a decade or two now and many in their teens and twenties are totally out of touch with norms that we once used to know in our younger years. Who's fault is this the parents or the schools? How would you reach out to your kids regarding morals and good character?

Children have to be disciplined from a young age even before they reach school going age. Discipline means moral as well as mental training and the development of self-controlled behaviour. Discipline is recognised as the essential condition of an enriched life. Parents should be responsible for the behaviour of their children.

Does discipline necessarily mean good morals and values? Yes, it is necessary to enrich our lives but just any kind of discipline? Shouldn't we make sure that the substance and application of this disciplinary process be linked towards good norms and morals of a society? Are parents the only ones responsible in disciplining their children?

Discipline is closely associated with morals and good values. We have to inculcate values in the child in the best formative years. Teaching physical and intellectual education is find but moral and spiritual education should also get more attention. For teachers, parents and all concerned with public life, moral education is an indispensable part of children's education.

the kids starts his learning from his home that would include his parents, relatives or whoever lives with him. school just simply develop and enhance the kid's mind and perspectives. to be able to let kids learn the proper morals, values and norms in life, parents should show good examples to their kids for them to follow.

But how have these morals and values changed over the years and how has it affected kids today vis-a-vis the way you understand the values you were taught as a young girl? Have these values made kids today more able to withstand the rigors and challenges that life has to offer as compared to kids 20 years ago? Thanks for your inputs.

children always have different insights and understanding which differs on tha changes that takes effect in their lives as they grow. we learn as we journey through our lives and there are experiences in our lives that also affects our moras, values and norm. It also depends on how the parents discipline their kids while they are still young and how those kids discipline themselves as they grow older.

Character,attitudes, behavioral patterns have all undergone an unimaginable change in recent years . Times have changed beyond our expectations . People no longer love and respect each other . It's money and money only that gathers momentum . Strange though, such is the order of the day .

Now that we know this, what are we doing about it? Are we contented by these changes over the years? Lets put our hands up and show others that we may not be going the right direction.
