Five Lessons Every Kid Should Learn

1.   Learn how to love.  Love truly does make the world go round.  I also think kids who know they are loved do better in life.  I’m not quite sure how to teach that, but by showing my kids love everyday, they have learned it.

2.  Empathy.  For the same reasons as love.  They have to understand how their actions effect others.

3.  What the naughty words.  So they don’t use them and get in trouble.  :)

4.  Who the boss is — whether they are at home, at school, or at work later in life.  You need to know who the authority figures are in your life.

5.  Sometimes it’s okay to cry.  A good cry never hurt anyone.
