Patience, value themselves and not to let others decide their worth,  a positive outlook and acceptance.

My parents (didn't agree on hardly anything) taught me to have self-confidence, aproach life and everything in it with positivity. Have an open mind. Intention is important. Wanting to be a good person, wanting to do good for others, and following through with those intentions are important. Sometimes the outcome is not what you expected, but if your intentions were good, then  it is okay. (it is hard to explain in a short reply)

 What I already instilled in her, a love of nature, acceptance, tolerance, discipline.

My mother didnt teach me anything really.. i grew up in the slums near whore and drug houses... when we lived in better places, strippers, drag queens, and the GLBT community.. all of these things were normal to me... So i would like my kids to know that and that Love knows no boundaries and that i will be in their corner no matter what

proper morals, postive attitudes, have a non-prejudice attitude towards people of different cultures. like people for who they are, not there skin color or there background. be peaceable towards all god's children. be open-minded towards things or ideas. --Love is color is  blind, so, love someone who will love you back with all of your heart.-- And if you peel off every one skin, we are all the same underneath our skin.

My parents taught me a lot, so it was hard for me to think of something I want to teach ds that they didn't teach me.  But since they were insanely overprotective, I would like to teach him that he can't live his life in a bubble and he should take a risk for something that is important to him.  I won't always be there to protect him, so I want him to learn how to pick himself back up when he "falls" and to not let fear dictate his life decisions.

to value yourself and have manners and be respectful to your elders.... and to have a plan for life after high school.

My parents taught me a lot. Empathy (which is the most important thing imo); tolerance; compassion for others; etc.

The only thing I can think that I taught my son that my parents probably didn't do so well (I'm old; that's the way it was) is to instill self-confidence in him.
