What are the most important things I should teach my child?

Well, there are many, and these can form the top list -
    Parenting, Children, Happiness, Success, Exams, PT education, Sandeep Manudhane, Sandeep Indore, PT's IAS Academy
  • Be a great learner.
  • Listen to wise people with an open mind and closed mouth.
  • Read an hour daily.
  • Don't hoard stuff.
  • Don't be a brands person. It's the quickest route to spiritual death.
  • Discover new perspectives without losing your own.
  • Read two hours daily.
  • Write something with a pen on a paper daily. Have a good handwriting.
  • Walk.
  • Laugh a lot. Laugh like mad!
  • Fail. Enjoy failure. Emerge with lessons.
  • Respect others' success no matter how much you detest it.
  • Read a lot daily.
  • Don't be a jerk, meet and talk to people.
  • Help someone in need regularly.
  • Learn about the Universe; it's the most mysterious thing you won't ever get out of!
  • Love science and its approach. But don't hate religion and spirituality.
  • Learn Sanskrit shlokas even @ 2 or 3 per month.
  • Cry when you need to. Don't be ashamed of it.
  • Don't expect a smooth, hassle-free and scratch-free existence. Enjoy the tumbles. Love life!
And guess what - these lessons apply to all of us!

Great Post Sir. It was good to read something from you after a long gap.

Here is how I expand some of these points -- Sorry if I am wrong/vague. Please correct me if possible.
I believe these points fall into some

Focus Area: Develop habit of reading
Out of twenty points you have used three points (#3, #7, #13) to focus on habit of reading. Knowing you, I derive that you have done that deliberately to underline the importance of reading.


Focus Area: Keep Learning New things
1) Be a great learner -- mean Be Curious and keep mind open that there is more to learn than what you know already
2) Listen to wise people with an open mind and closed mouth -- When a wise person is speaking pay attention and do not interrupt too often.
6) Discover new perspectives without losing your own -- You do not have to lose your own ideas and perspective in order to learn others.
16) Learn about the Universe; it's the most mysterious thing you won't ever get out of!
18) Learn Sanskrit shlokas even @ 2 or 3 per month.

Focus Area: Idea Generation and Emotional Awareness
8) Write something with a pen on a paper daily. Have a good handwriting. -- Writing something of your own will force you introspect. When you will write, you will read and validate the thoughts flowing in your mind also. That will help you come up with better ideas. With practice you will learn to methodically put your thoughts in right sequence. Also, you may write about experiences and be able to understand your emotions while going through those experiences. It will also help you become more aware about yourself.


Focus Area: Good work management Ethics
4) Don't hoard stuff -- Make periodic/gradual/continual progress. Do not think you are a super hero who can solve all problems even if it is late in the game.

Focus: Stress Free Healthy Living
5) Don't be a brands person. It's the quickest route to spiritual death.
9) Walk.
10) Laugh a lot. Laugh like mad!
11) Fail. Enjoy failure. Emerge with lessons.
12) Respect others' success no matter how much you detest it.
19) Cry when you need to. Don't be ashamed of it.

Hi, Sandeep Manudhane. This is a great writing you have shared here. I read and got much information that we should teach our children. Essaysamurai is also provides more information related to this. Thank you very much for sharing such a nice item.

I totally agree on all the points, except on sanskrit shlokas.. I do not know sanskrit so just grasping sanskrit shlokas 2 to 3 per month wont help a person at all.

the purpose of shlokas is unclear to me..
Apprise accordingly.

सच में आप के विचारों में आधुनिकता को कैसे अपनाएँ
और अपनी संस्कृति को भी ना छोड़ें,दोनों के मेल जोल से एक सुन्दर संसार की स्थापना कैसे करें का पता चलता है।
आज यही सिख जो हम छोड़ चुके हैं उस को अपनाने की जरुरत है। नहीं तो हम युहीं बैचेन, स्वार्थी, परेशान तब तक होते रहेगें जब तक हम पूर्ण तबाह ना हो जाय

सर आप मुझे हर बार प्रभावित करते हैं,और इस बार भी इसका कोई अपवाद नहीं।
