The 10 Strongest Values to Teach Kids

This article has been deemed Radical by our teen team.  Check out the rest of our Radical Articles if you like this one! 

I have been putting up a few worksheet posts for parents to print-out and work through and have gotten great response.

Today, I want to talk about values, ethics and morals.  Values are so important.  I often try to incorporate values into my lessons.  There are also ethics for different areas of life.  Try asking yourself (and your family) the following questions:

What do I value about family?

What do I value in a friend? What does it mean to be a good friend?

What does it mean to be a ‘good person’?

What are the top 10 values I would like to pass onto my kids?

Although, I do not have any kids yet, I brainstormed the top values I would like to teach them (might help inspire you as well!).

1. Honesty

2. Kindness

3. Love

4. Self-Discipline

5. Optimism

6. Compassion

7. Leadership

8. Love of learning

9. Loyalty

10. Respect
