Be courteous to people whom you meet. Say magic words like ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.
Help the less fortunate
Donate mildly-used things to the underprivileged. Your child will understand how donating impacts their lives.

Treat everyone around you, even pets, with kindness and respect.
Encourage owning up
Apologise to your child when you are wrong. They will learn the value of accountability.
You can regularly volunteer for community services like beach cleaning, planting saplings and adoption drives.
If you promise to spend time with your child or give them presents, honour those commitments.
Have healthy discussions
Listen and honour your child's point of view while they study or do chores.
Do your share of tasks
Offer to help your partner, especially on stressful days. Your child too will learn to contribute at home.
