Be friendly, but not with everyone:
Yes, teaching your kids to be friendly sounds great and social but that’s not going to work all time and with everyone he meets. You need to teach him to recognize the people so he can learn when to keep a distance from others.
Accepting mistakes need Guts:
We all make mistakes, don’t we? But, the only thing what matters is either a kid accepts mistakes or not. It’s not just about only his mistakes, but his pal’s as well.

Learning about the localities:
Don’t make your kid a dork! You may get him all essentials i.e. Laptop, cycle, toys and a pet but are you sure that your little bud knows about the locality and the area you live in. Start telling him about the postal address and your known people in society so he can make a right decision in hard times.
