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 16 2011: If i had a 6 year old I'd teach him/her to :

    1. Question things , [ Beliefs , systems , people's authority including mine :P ]
    2. Never allow his/her decisions to become affected by other people's criticisms , opinons , yada yada yada
    3. Always show kindness and understand that not everyone has the same opportunity or chances in life. that other people probably don't live the same way he/she does
    4. To be humble & strong
    5. Never taddle tale !!

    I don't have kids , lots of nephews and nieces though
