This is a silly picture below however it does give a good point. If you want children to follow a good path in life you have to start them off on the right path as early as possible. You have to teach them and make them understand the difference between right and wrong. Teach them to enjoy learning and reading. Teach them to live a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and physical fitness. Teach them to control their emotions especially anger. Teach them about respect and courtesy. Raise them to have ethics and values.
It is much easier to train good children versus having to fix crappy adults.
