How can we raise our new baby to be of good character?
She will gradually assume responsibility for her own lifetime character growth and development, but you have a huge opportunity to set her on a positive path while she is in her early years with you. While every child has his/her own personality, character is different. Character qualities affect the words and actions of every human being.
Some fundamental qualities that you will teach your child through your words, example and teachable moments are patience, respect, friendliness, compassion, generosity, gentleness, helpfulness, honesty, love, fairness (justice), moderation, flexibility, peacefulness, creativity, responsibility, confidence, assertiveness, courage, self-discipline, service, thoughtfulness, trustworthiness and truthfulness.
