Demonstrate that giving back is the most important thing one can do. You can teach this with money. If you hand a kid a quarter to drop into the local street corner animal shelter container, they are just delivering YOUR money so nothing is learned. Sometimes kids need to know how it feels to help others with the sacrifice of donating their own money. This also works with donating some holiday and birthday presents and Halloween candy to the sick or poor.

Every generation seems to have a serial killer hyped up by the media. Many of these serial killings could have been prevented if people saw the early warning signs as children. These infamous killers’ violent acts towards people were first directed at animals when they were kids. Notorious murderers including Dennis Rader (BTK Killer), Jeffrey Dahmer (cannibal), Albert DeSalvo (Boston Strangler), and Lee Boyd Malvo (Beltway Sniper) all tortured and killed many animals in their youth. As they got older, they transferred their enjoyment for inflicting pain and murder on people. If parents, teachers, coaches, neighbors, etc. saw the warning signs when these murderers were still children, then they may have been able to prevent the atrocities that were to follow in the years to come.
If you witness animal abuse, report it immediately. YOU may be the one to not only stop the pain of an innocent animal but also save our society from evil bloodshed in the future.

To unspoil a child, they need to learn how to earn the items they want to have. Children need to feel a connect between work and money.

They will learn that if they work, they will get paid. If they do not work, then they will not get paid. That is the rule for parents in the real world, so it might as well be for kids too.
