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: There should be more, though, beyond the five.
    1. Remember that people lie surprisingly often.
    2. You do NOT need to call them on it. (usually)
    3. Don't waste money, time, property, friendships, etc.
    4. Be flexible, change directions, but only when necessary.
    5. Manners are important, especially when rare.
