eecuadrado:  Im not a mom, but plan to be one day.  IF they only took ONE thing from me, of which I hope to teach them/show them, it would be RESPECT.  Respecting themselves, others, differences (from skin color, to sexual orientation, to varying opinions, and ideologies, etc, etc, etc).  I think respect can go a long way, can cover many areas, and will always keep one ‘grounded’.

Maybe it’s because customer service is a big part of my job, but working with rude, demanding people that have no respect for others and feel entitled is just the WORST. I hope my children are polite, thankful, and respectful of others.

eecuadrado:  like PP not a mom yet but hope to be in the future. The one thing I’d want for my kids to learn is to always be kind. So much stems from just being nice and kind 🙂

I also don’t have children yet, but my one lesson of utmost importance is definitely gratitude. I think from that stems so many other things and if they know above all to be grateful, I think I’ll have done a pretty good job.

No children yet, but a big lesson I would like them to learn is how to have empathy. I think being able to wrap your mind around how someone else is feeling, especially when you don’t feel that way yourself, has enormous implications for what kind of person you grow up to be.

Above all, treat others with kindness.  In all these years, we still haven’t come up with a rule better than the Golden Rule.

eecuadrado:  Aside from the obvious ones about self esteem and do unto others, reading is important.
