Summary

This booklet was developed by early education teachers to help parents teach their children values necessary for learning and for living. The introduction identifies six lifelong values, discusses the important role played by parents in teaching these values, and offers a checklist of positive ways parents interact with their children. Each of the next sections focuses on one of the lifelong values, defining the skills involved and identifying ways to encourage the child to develop those skills. The six lifelong values are: (1) confidence, which can be encouraged by giving children jobs that are appropriate to their age and ability and providing them with the tools to complete the job successfully; (2) responsibility, which can be encouraged by empowering children to do things for themselves and letting them experience the natural consequences of their behavior; (3) perseverance, which can be encouraged by extending the time spent on a task and praising the child's ability to complete a job; (4) cooperation, which can be encouraged within the family and outside the home; (5) problem solving, which can be encouraged through age-appropriate activities and materials and giving children time to think and act on their ideas; and (6) respect, which can be encouraged by parents showing respect to the child, to others, and for properties.
