You know as a parent one of the most important decisions that you are going to make in life is selecting the right school for your child. Every parent wants his or her child to be a paragon of values. There is a long list of values like be it honesty, generosity, love, compassion, patience, humility or self-discipline. We all want our children to have these special qualities to become good human beings.

In Modern Era values such as Environment protection, interfaith harmony, gender equality has gained so much value. These values are developed by a foundation established by parents, siblings, relatives and social peer group.

 In school values like group spirit, fair play and sincerity towards work, come first. Later, when the kid will start certain question in his young adulthood the old values are judged and new values are formed.

These are some important tips whichever parent should follow to teach values to their children:-

1.    Family Values:-

Both parents should be on same track and guide the same values. If one of them does not agree with other then they should not question them in front of their child Otherwise, child get confused or they take advantage of the condition.

It is very important for children to be connected with their grandparents, from whom they can learn the value of simple living.

2.    Teaching sympathy values:-

For example, a small girl who accidentally puts classmate’s notebook in her bag may not understand how this affects the other girl. The parents need to explain to his/her child how his/her classmate is likely to get beaten or scolded by parents and maybe she can’t even perform well in the test if she will not study.

We should let our child know that how to put yourself in someone else shoes.

3.    Discipline, faith, and integrity:-

You have to tell them that you have faith in them that they can work it out. You should avoid lectures and don’t go to a rescue or fix anything let them give a chance. You should express compassion.

4.    Model Good Values:-

One of the best things that you can do for your children is that you should set an example for them. They will learn from you that how you treat them, overhearing your communications with others and observing what you do in different circumstances throughout the day.

If we want our children to take values like honesty, self-respect, and compassion, then we need to show these qualities. The teaching can if your children see you behave in ways that different what you’ve said.

5.    Use everyday experiences as a springboard for conversation:-

Every day you get many opportunities to teach your children about values. Use these encounters to start a conversation. You can tell about any incident you hear about in the news channel, something you or your children do or something they observe someone else do.  These can become great on the spot lesson for your child.

6.    Share your personal experiences:-

You can tell of a time when you stand up for your words rather than going along with the audience, befriended a student at school whom all students were teasing, turned in a lost purse rather than keeping the money for yourself, or worked very hard to achieve the desired goal. When you tell each incident, narrate why it was such a moral story, how you came to make the decision you did, and how everything turned out.

Nowadays trend of home education is increasing everywhere around the globe with many families included in this trend.

We know that in a class of 40 students we can’t expect much from a teacher to explain each and everything. The teacher can follow a prescribed method of teaching to complete the course in stipulated time. So we know that every child doesn’t get proper time and attention.

 The best thing about home education is that you can switch to home education any time. There are some tips for educating your child whether you educating the first time or you have been doing it for many years:-

1.    Be a friend, not a lecturer

 Your ultimate goal will become an educator of your child. You don’t have to give a lecture, and very soon you will find that you are also learning something new alongside your child.

2.    Attend Parent teacher meeting

 Every parent should try to attend home-school conferences. You will get many chances to check a large number of the curriculum; you can build networks and can listen to great speakers.

3.    Free environment

You should not try to duplicate a classroom environment and course in your home.

4.    Don’t rely on technology

One should not depend much on technology to educate a child. Because if we use a personal computer-based course and when we will experience certain problems, then your children will not do anything until the problem is fixed.

5.    Be creative

First, you have to decide an approach that how you teach your child at home. One of the biggest advantages of homeschooling is that it allows freedom to parents to determine how and what their child learns.  If you are trying to recreate a traditional school culture at your home then you should apply curriculum approach for best results.

The most important thing is that you need to communicate with your children. You can talk about what wrong they did in past and how to make better decisions, what qualities God wants to see in us, and why you’ve made certain choices in your own life.
