What are the Top 5 things you can teach/share with a 6 year old?

I am interested in what other fathers/mother do with their kids to help them become kind, caring and humble human beings.

  • Nov 9 2011: These are the top things I told my own children as soon as they were old enough to ask me why:

    There are no dumb questions; always ask why
    In your entire life, there will never be anything more important than your family
    Listen before you speak; think before you believe
    No one is perfect, not me, not you. Always do the best you can and always see the best in others.
    Everything dies -- it's part of life itself and it's what makes life precious
