You take the time to listen to the perspectives of others, and know that your perspective is only valuable if you constantly challenge it.

Being an adult doesn't have to mean stoically bottling up your emotions inside. If you have to cry, you cry, and if you need mental health help, you get it.


21. Courtesy toward service workers.


You never forget that service workers, even when they're not having their best day, are people too. This is why your kid will never curse out a waitress for being slow to bring their water and end up with an unwanted hair in their meal.

23. A positive attitude.

Life is hard, and keeping an upbeat outlook isn't always easy. You do it, though, because you want your kids to learn that nothing good comes from wallowing in one's hardships.
