Teaching kids good values

Values are really important. I think we are making human beings. Being a parent is the hardest job, not only are you raising them to work in the world; but you raising them to be a citizen. For me, right now, it's very basic. "Please," and "Thank you," we say a grace over our meal. It's not that we are religious, it is just to be thankful that we have a meal, and we drive with my children and we see people that are out and homeless; that these people do not have what we have at this time. We need to be grateful and thankful. When we say a grace at every meal, it is to remind us that this is not a guarantee, but this is something to be thankful for. Gratitude is something that I instill in them, all the time.
