    Answer by Freela at 8:15 AM on Oct. 21, 2010

  • To always remember to respect & love themselves, and other people will do the same. To be tolerant of others, and other belief systems, but to hold tight to their own beliefs. To take responsibility for their actions, and to help in their community.

  • Compassion. I believe that this world is seriously lacking that and it's important to me for my son to have compassion for others. Compassion and morals goes together and I want nothing more than for my son to be a good person with a lot of heart. You can have a ton of money, a huge house, but without compassion, you are no different than the person next to you.
