One of the observations of teachers and parents today is the decline of good manners or values among kids or school children. The way they talk, they behave, deal with adults or even their simple gestures reflect the modern day living which is far, far different from the behavior of children before. A lot of behavioral problem also rise in school even at home that focuses on the manners of children. These matters were the burden of both teachers and parents today.

To solve this crisis, parents and teachers need to work hand in hand so as to train and develop our kids today the way they should go. We need to serve as role model to them in terms of Respect, Honesty, Love of God, Love of Country, Industry, Kindness and in showing other virtues. We must be careful in all our actions and words if we want them to grow and develop as responsible citizens. In school and at home, we must not get tired of checking all their behaviors and even their words. Teachers need also to use the time allotted in teaching values and even integrate good manners in all subject areas if we want them to have a good life.

The behavior of our kids today should serve as challenge to us and not as a burden because we play an important role in training them the way God wants them to be.
