You, as a parent will have the ability to train your child to be an obedient and good children, free from vices, if you yourself will set as a good example to them. The formative years of a child say from preschool to grade school, they will usually copy whatever they see in the environment so we have to guide them and talk to them all the time. It is also best to follow up on what they're doing to make sure they do not go to the wrong path. As an example, I always tell my kids that smoking is bad for the health so I do not smoke myself. I am free from vices so I am free to guide them to the right path. Remember to set as a good example that they will follow.

Hi rbdescartin, We must teach a child by example, but be sure to teach him/her to believe in themselves.Let your child know that they can do or have anything they want if they are willing to work for it. Praise your child every time he does something right and never ever tell her that she's stupid or dumb. Always be honest with your children then they will know that they can trust you and bring their problems to you. Also trust your child to do the right thing, when they know you trust them they will not let you down. Love them unconditionally. Blessings.
