Make sure they understand that life isn't about high grades and a big bank account. Make sure they understand to grow up kind and compassionate, happy and making others happy.

Unfortunately, life IS about grades and money...

l honestly think that we, adults, are victims of bad parenting. What's worse is that we are repeating history on our offsprings!

I don't care what my kid does in the future as long as they are able to survive on their own while enjoying life.

Probably the most important behaivor we can help our kids develop is self-dicipline and grit, being able to create a structure, to have goals, and to never ever give up at the face of difficulties, challenges and roadblocks. We need to ensure that we are the right example for them till their teenage years and after that we need to make sure that they are in a development focused and a positive environment with kids that also come from similar minded parents. I strongly believe in the environment and its impact on children.

I'm not disagreeing with doing chores or their benefits to a child as an adult, but for me the lesson I took away from it as a kid was that regardless of how hard i worked, how long i did it or how often, it would always need doing again. mow the lawn, do the dishes, wash the laundry, my efforts were futile as they were all needed again sooner than later. That lesson worked its way into my psyche and its taken a lot of work to not be so pessimistic and depressed about putting forth an effort despite the results not being lasting.

Allow your child to be different and celebrate their individuality and let them make mistakes and be there when they fall. — this is how I hope to raise my child.

I don't have any kids but if I did, I would do my best to support them, instill confidence, a strong work ethic, accountability, independence and the importance of facts, reason, evidence, so they could succeed on their own at whatever they choose to do. I'd also expose them to the truth about all the SJW feminist multicultural BS being rammed down the throats of kids today.
