One way kids learn how to behave is by watching others model behavior traits, both good and bad. When your children are exposed to some of this behavior, either on television, in public or at home it makes it even harder to raise a decent and responsible young person. I believe most children strive to do their best and need to see good behavior patterns to model themselves after. How can we as parents teach our children to respect others, maintain self-control, to persevere through hard times and be fair, tolerant and empathetic? We can no longer sit back and hope our kids grow to become caring, decent, human beings. We must deliberately and passionately teach and model the traits of strong character in our kids so they really can become the best they can be and in doing so, we will nurture the qualities that enhance their moral growth.
