How to raise a moral child in a decadent society

Let us face it: raising a child these days is more hard work than it was about 50 years ago. There are too many distractions today, opinions about how it should be done, the pressure to be a cool parent, etc. 

TV, the internet, etc. have institutionalized immorality and made it all seem normal. When you are kind, polite, and honest, people assume you are not ‘sharp’ or that it is outdated. So how do you get the job done?

1. Be it
Children learn by modeling; they watch what you do and follow. If you want your kids to have a good moral compass, have one too.

2. Explain it to them
Tell your children regularly how important it is for them to be ‘good’ people, how it affects other people’s feelings and the good they can reap from it later in life. Let them understand that their actions have consequences, whether positive or negative.

3. Reinforce positive behaviour
When your child does something good, reward him/her in some way. Of course, this shouldn’t always be material so they don’t always attach material gain to doing good. It could just be words of appreciation or a smile.

4. Set consistent standards
If you have set the standards for behaviour on particular issues, don’t bend the rules when it does not favour them. Always stick by what you have taught them.

5. Encourage them to have good role models
Watch the kinds of people your kids look up to and ensure they conform to the values you are inculcating in them (the children).

6. Teach fairness in games
Never let them get away with cheating, bullying, etc. even while playing.

7. Punish for bad behaviour
Chastise your child when he/she goes against the values and be sure to explain the reason for the discipline.
