    You lead by example. It won't do any parent any good if you tell your kids how to behave and then you go and do exactly the opposite of what you've asked your kids to do.

    A lot depends on other factors ;privacy,whose calling,etc. The phone can be a way for ill intentioned people to gain information. Many have two phone numbers listed and unlisted for their own reasons. It is an individual choice.

    Try these techniques: 1) Tell your kids that they're good. Let them overhear you telling others they're good. 2) Tell your kids that other people say they're very good, too. Give specific examples. 3) Reinforce your expectations by saying of course they are, that's how you expect them to be.
