When one shows respect to a child, the child's self respect grows. It can be dangerous not to teach a child to respect others. Parents need to teach their children about how to learn. And, teach them about who will be teaching them. They need to teach their children to think over what they learned and experienced that day. At bedtime is a good time for this. Teach your children that the teacher puts in a lot of time to prepare for what is presented to the class. Teach your children that the teacher is to be respected. Teach your children that if they are to take full advantage of what was taught that day to them, they must pay close attention and take notes that will, in their evening thinking time, help them to recall what was earlier explained to them by the teacher.
    Some Christians reason anything to do with the self is bad. Perhaps they always think of themselves as being bad. Jesus died for our 'selves' so we could also live as we never have before -1Thessalonians 5:10
    We need to remove from our hearts any false philosophy about what it takes to be righteous. If you have love in your heart, what bad can you do? -Romans 13:10
    Children need to be taught what's good to do and how to do good. Anytime love is expressed in actions of concern for others, the attitude of God is developed -Ephesians 6:4.
    Children need to develop resilience in order to handle all life will throw at them. A resilient child is one who understands knowledge that can affect his life positively. A resilient child has good communicative skills, self control and a good heritage. A resilient child doesn't dislike himself and isn't down on himself, seeking instead for consistent improvement in human relations.
    Teach them to be careful, to clean up after themselves, to be efficient in all things, as this gains them an advantage by giving them more time to get educated, both in street smarts, and school; to pick up any objects that one could inadvertently trip on, losing balance and then falling. Teach them responsibility.
    The quality of their purpose and personality is related to the standards any child's parents live by.

-Making outstanding children:-Outstanding performers are created by proper nurturing, not just, 'born' that way. Practice, practice, practice in a selection the child is interested in makes perfection.
    Psychologists have found that environment can have a significant effect upon intelligence, as well as future. Children have a better chance of becoming high achievers following their interest, if they are made to develop the habit of study in what it is they may be interested in. If they have no specific interest, then the parents are not involving themselves in quality experiences with the child to guide and help him or her, as they see how the child does in various activities and/or studies. 
    Too many parents sacrifice their children on their own altar of selfishness. They are sowing the wind in the child, and risk reaping the whirlwind -Hosea 8:7.

-Making good citizens:-Be doing good things with your children, not for them when they are able to just as easily do them. Teach them to do good things when apart from you, when you are not looking; just because they should have the character to want to do them. To teach them one must be involved with them. You'll either let them become spoiled brats or train them to become good citizens -Proverbs 30:11 "There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless-(original implies – 'appreciate by being a blessing to')-their mother."-Well trained children have a great chance to rise to the top in life.
    Things given to children in lieu of (in place of) involvement with them produces spoiled brats. Good quality things given to children along with continual parental involvement builds a quality child with diverse interests, a broad enthusiastic outlook, balanced perceptions, appreciation of the finer things, confidently capable of handling life's vicissitudes.
    After trying baby sitters about 8 times, I'd had it! Each time we went out without the children, something happened. Finally I got the message.
    From then on, we took the kids everywhere with us, even on our anniversary. It was more than worth it! How else can kids begin to think like adults unless they learn by interacting with adults? Don't you think that through seeing how mom and dad act and react and adapt in various situations and respond to mixed comments, that they'll retain approaches and information both immediately and later helpful for their expression?

-Always be alert to what your child is up to-(Proverbs 20:11 original here is 'weaned' {one just finished with mother's milk}) both physically and in his being creative. Be alert for his talents, the things he naturally adheres to. He will get good at those things he develops a love towards. With encouragement he'll develop a love toward those things. The devil's trick is to get your children 'wasted', that is, get them against themselves, so they'll waste their life in every way possible.-...continues
