Teach your kid how to appreciate the role of different people who shape his/her life.  Each person has a certain level of contribution and that needs to be acknowledged.  Teach your kid to remain humble and credit those, who help attaining positive accomplishments.  When you groom your kid right from the beginning, humility will become a strong part of their personality for the years to come.

Your child will become resilient and continue to achieve the set goals through determination. 

5. Honesty

If they get injured while playing, you need to understand that no one wants to invite trouble, just don’t get mad.

Discipline your child in the right parenting style so that they don’t fear you. Make them respect you and your guidelines.
