Tuesday's Blog Hop--Three Things That Parents Should Teach Their Children

Wow, that's a big subject! As parents, we teach our children so many things...We are our children's most important teachers...how to pick just three things?

I believe the first thing that we should teach is love--for Jesus, for others and for yourself. Love is patient, love is kind, love is unconditional...your family will love you, no matter what.

The second thing that I believe is very important to teach our children is honor. We need to teach children that we should honor people(our parents, siblings, teachers, elderly, etc), places(our homes, schools, churches, our country, etc.) and things-- the animals/wildlife, yes, even bugs and lizards-- things that we share our world with.
The last thing that I think we should teach our children is obedience. As a christian I believe that everyone should obey God. Children should obey their parents, teachers, and other adults. Teach them that we need to obey the laws of our cities, states, and country, even if we don't always understand or agree. If we learn to be obedient at an early age, it makes life much easier as we grow older.

Just learning these three simple things will go a long way toward making our child the kind of person that we all should strive to be. Those are my thoughts for this Tuesday, how about you?
