Be good to others and teach your children empathy. Bring back "citizenship" as a reqired class.

The most effective way for parents to teach empathy to their children is to model the specific behaviors of empathy. They’d rather see a sermon than hear one.

I agree on bringing back citizenship- or civics.

Unfortunately, more emphasis is placed these days on the privileges of citizenship with too little focus on the responsibilities.

Here too, parents need to model the specific behaviors of good citizenship.
