In today’s fast paced life, it is very important to have a strong value system so as to be able to go through the entire cycle of life as a good human being. Wherever you see that children are into bad habits like misbehave, steeling, etc, it only shows that the value system of those children is not good or was never incorporated even, which is why they are indulging in all kinds of bad deals.
Moral lessons should be taught from the very early age so that the children tend to understand and like them better. It is always imperative for all parents to begin instilling the moral habits and lessons in their little ones from day one. In fact there are parents who believe in doing so way before their little ones are born, for the only reason that they should have strong moral values which will make living their life easy and a good experience unlike the rest who end up ruining themselves only due to the fact that their moral background isn’t too well developed.
Begin by telling them short stories that could be mythology related or even the regular ones that will help them understand the right and wrong immediately. It is always good to teach your young ones what’s right and what not so that they can easily differentiate between the two better.
Moral lectures and stories help children to decide right from wrong. It is the best way to make them understand what their various duties towards their parents, grand parents, school teachers and friends are. Once they know all their duties it will be easy for them to abide by them to be able to lead a life full of principles.
Such principles help our children of today to know the meaning of their existence and many other aspects which assist them to rise higher in the way they think and live than the rest like them. It is therefore important to have such lessons taught to your little ones so that you end up making them perfect children, citizens and individuals too.
Ask them to tell you what the moral of the story each time you rattle out a story for them at bedtime so that differentiating between good and bad becomes easy for them. This way you will also know how much your children are able to comprehend by way of such stories and tales.
