We need to develop good habits in our children from an early age. The younger they are, the more likely this behavior will last them through their lives. They need to learn to work diligently, be obedient to their parents, tell the truth, and take care of their personal hygiene. If they master those qualities, they are likely to have happy, fruitful lives.

What you've mention is really worthy to be given attention especially that nowadays, kids seem to ignore those important values we treasured before.

First important point is to implement the good habit for children is parents should treat them as friend. Heard every problem or sorrow and suggest good thing to their child.

Implementing a good habit to the children requires patient and discipline to both parents and children. Parents implement and children obey. Most people think that it's easy to implement than to obey but I should say it's much easier to obey than to implement, why? If you are the one who implement; you will be the one to obey first. So you are not only the implementer but the also the follower. Yes, child follows what's their parents are doing but sometimes there are things that our child does without our influence, that's what they called.. child's nature.

In my opinion Implementing Good habits to the children is a challenge to every parents specially if the children has already developed bad habits. Making a good habit is the same as making a bad habit. The brain is amoral when it comes to habits. It does not care if it is good or bad. All it knows is that the habit action is routinely performed so it would benefit from an improved neurological pathway for more efficient processing. To form a habit all you need is to do is repeat the activity. Parents should encourage and not discourage the child to make a good habit.

Hello ChrisLavon Absolutely correct!...Parents are responsible to mold their kids personality. Parents should set as a good example for their kids.. Teach them good qualities, and let them learn how to love God.. have a great day

If the parents having the good habits the child will follow it. If they are not genuine and acting upon situation their children also will do the same thing. Children will never change their habbit untill they get bad friends or if the family did not care about them or giving too much of advices.

Small children learned through imitation. So the best way to teach them is to show by example. Parents are their first teacher and whatever they see from their parents, they consider it correct.

Children are actually the product of their own parents. If the parents show bad example, children will follow accordingly. I am rather sad and disappointed of the fact that many parents tend to take things for granted. What I mean is that they only know how to create a baby but they don't care much about how to raise him or her to become a good person. I have read a book about psychology and it mentions a lot of psychological disorder that originates from the wrongful acts of parents. Children look highly upon their parents and they always believe that parents will never do mistakes. They trust parents wholeheartedly but sometimes this trust seems to be breached when parents do something that hurt the feelings of their children without explaining the reason. As a result, the children will grow becoming a mentally confused adult, which is very sad.

Lucky are those children with parents like that. I don't have that kind of parents but I'm not saying I would do the same to my future children same as how they treat me. My parents did not develop a good habit in me but I grow up as a good person because I choose to be one. I teach and train myself. I forced myself to become a responsible person at a young age. I didn't enjoy much my childhood life. Some part of it, yes, because I used to think or act 5 or 10 years older than my playmates or classmates. I became a successful person out on my own. As far as I could remember, I never did bad things but I went wrong at times or for so many times already but I always did try my best to correct my own mistake.
