2 Things Kids Should Be Taught More of Today

When I think back through my life I feel like we have made a lot of improvements in our society, especially when it comes to racial equality. And while there are plenty of improvements, I have noticed some good life lessons for kids have diminished over the years. As I think about growing up as a young man in the Sixties and Seventies, and now as I look at my children growing up and their friends, I see several lessons kids are missing these days.

Here are 2 things I wish kids were taught more of today.

Manners

We need to do a better job teaching this to our children. It seems old-fashioned to say, “Yes ma’am,” and, “No sir,” or using the words please and thank you. However, it is the right thing.

Respect

We need to teach our kids to have a respect for not only elders but a respect for people in general. I know I need to do a better job in this area. We need to help make respecting others a habit for our children. Make sure they know: we respect people and fairness. When we do it consistently life goes a lot better.
