Include your children in family discussions, and use these as ways to show them how people can get along with others and work together.
Practice what you preach. Children notice when you don’t.
Work towards a healthy lifestyle by eating well and exercising regularly. Avoid making negative comments about your body and other people’s, too. Not only will you be healthier, but you will also send an important message about body image and acceptance.
Show that you enjoy education and learning. If you make it seem interesting and enjoyable rather than a chore, you child is more likely to have a positive attitude toward school.
Keep a positive attitude in your life: think, act, and talk in an optimistic way.
Take responsibility for yourself by admitting your own mistakes and talking about how you can correct them. Do not blame everything that goes wrong on other people or circumstances.
Use problem-solving skills to deal with challenges or conflicts in a calm and productive way. Getting upset or angry when a problem comes up teaches your child to respond in the same way.
Show kindness and respect to others in your words and your actions.
