15 Ways to Raise a Child with Great Values
When kids grow up with a strong sense of values, research shows that they filter other influences in their world through the lens of the values taught to them by parents or caregivers.

But how do you teach values to a child? Experts say you must consciously teach your kids your values instead of expecting them to learn automatically.

This article from Aha! Parenting explains why it's important to teach values to your kids and 15 practical ways for parents to do so.
