Firstmost, teach your children cleanliness of habits.

Teach them to be prompt.

Teach them to, wisely, heed the advice of their peers and stay safe.

Finally, teach them to be polite and courteous—to get to know others before judging them or, good good, being rude to strangers.

And of course, needless to say, make sure violence is a last resort—never excusable, no matter what others on the playground might say or do.

  1. Might using the spell-check be an example of "cleanliness [note the letter "i"] of habits" in the realm of writing?
