I strongly believe that good morale is as important as education is, it goes side by side and equally essential which cannot be neglected. Our Children are the future of parents therefore not even a minor mistake is affordable. Parents should focus on both academics as well as good morale by teaching them healthy habits which are discussed below.
The first and the most important habit is, parents should develop a habit of self-discipline in a child as it is an important aspect of the overall personality development of a child. Secondly, parents should cultivate a sense of well-organized routine in a child, so that a child can perform all tasks accordingly.
There is a saying which we all have grown up listening to, “Early to bed and early to rise” it is a valid statement that cannot be denied. There should be a schedule set for the entire day, once this habit is been adopted by a child at an early age, it will remain for the entire life and it will help in achieving goals to be a successful person in life.
Another important habit is, a child should learn to follow a balanced diet regimen. We all are familiar with the saying” You are what you eat”. Parents should try to give clean and healthy food as much as possible like; vegetables, fruits, proteins and all the essential nutrients which a child needs for growth. They should avoid junk food, preservative, and frozen food, it destroys the organs and can make you obese which can make you lethargic and can be a hurdle in achieving goals.
Moreover, a child should know about cleanliness i.e they should have a habit of showering daily, brush their teeth twice a day, wash their hands often especially before and after meals. Hygiene also plays an important role as all the other factors. Lastly, there should be limited screen time, they should read something daily. Children should clean their spaces in order to maintain discipline. Also, there should a family bonding which is another very important aspect specially in the era of social media where interaction is reducing day by day which has trendemous drawbacks.
To conclude, in my opinion, good moral character equally plays a vital role in becoming a successful human being both in personal and professional life. Therefore parents should work their level best for the overall personality development of a child.
