Model Good Behavior

Your child has special brain cells called "mirror" neurons.

Mirror neurons allow children to reflect what they see you doing in their brains so they can copy or imitate how you behave.  Your child can actually feel or mirror the same emotions that you are feeling!  The best way to teach children good behaviors is to model good behavior.  Sharing, being kind, being respectful, and giving praise are all ways to teach your children how you expect them to behave.
