Exploring Moral Values with Your Child*

One of your key responsibilities as a parent is to teach your child the difference between right and wrong and explore various moral values with them so that they grow up to be a good, kind member of a society. You are one of the most influential people in your child’s life, so you are in a unique position to help guide them in the right direction. It’s never to early to start teaching your child certain moral values. Below are some suggestions from an international study centre.


Try and help your child understand that all people should be treated with respect, regardless of their age, gender, skin colour, or anything else that makes them different. The world is filled with diversity, and the sooner your child understands that people should be treated as equals, the better. Try and introduce them to a range of different types of people from a young age so that they are able to build relationships and practise being kind and respectful.


One element of respecting others is being compassionate. In order to raise a compassionate child, you will need to teach them to empathise with others and emphasise the importance of being kind and offering a helping hand where possible. Praise them when you notice them demonstrating compassionate so that they are more inclined to continue doing so in the future.

Hard Work

Try to help your child understand how important it is to put in the effort in order to reap the results. For example, if they work hard on a piece of homework, they are more likely to get a better grade. If they put in the effort when it comes to household chores, their home will be cleaner and more comfortable. Lead by example and let your child see you working hard.


Being resilient is the ability to bounce back quickly when setbacks occur. To help your child become more resilient, you will need to find ways to teach them problem-solving skills and boost their self-esteem, so that they are more confident dealing with adversity.

There are, of course, hundreds of moral values that parents can explore with their children, the above are just a few ideas to get you started. The chances are, you are probably already instilling various values in your child, just by reminding them to say please and thank you or encouraging them not to give up when things get tough.
