Good manners, the use of the words "thanks" and "please", benevolent behavior not only simplify the relations of strangers, but also decorate any conversation, and in some situations help to open doors which seem strongly locked at first sight.
Ability to speak "no"
The word "no" should not be dominating in the child's lexicon, but it is necessary in some situations. It needs to be told the stranger who suggests to go with it, or to the schoolmate who is borrowing things and not returning them, to the age-mate suggesting to be indulged with the forbidden drinks or medicines. The word "no" is necessary for own safety, and in certain cases and for respect of the personal time.
The tidy person is always perceived positively therefore the child since childhood has to take in a habit to care for purity of the body. It will positively affect not only from the esthetic point of view, but also in respect of health, for example, regular oral cavity care will save from unpleasant visits to the stomatologist.
The people who are regularly late for meetings or dates cause the greatest irritability in people around. Everything begins with delay on lessons, and turns into chronic delays later that can negatively affect not only the relations, but also career. It is necessary to work with children since childhood, developing at them a habit always to arrive on time.
Many habits need to be developed to automatism in the earliest childhood. Late it will save from many troubles, including from crossing of the road to red light, negligent treatment with fire or uses of dangerous devices without observance of safety rules.
Ability to listen
This ability is required at school to perceive information, in work to conduct negotiations or to have interviews, in the interpersonal relations that everyone had an opportunity to express and to structurally conduct conversations and dialogues.
Ability to apologize and recognize the mistakes
Many mistakes are not something shameful, and only oversights which everyone can allow. The child should not have sense of shame, and here he has to apologize. It concerns also those cases when the child unintentionally pushed someone, and situations when hurt or offended without malicious intent. The ability to apologize not only improves the relations, but also helps to remove cargo from soul if in any situation he was wrong.
In any situation the reading will help to brighten up time. Qualitative literature will broaden horizons, will make the speech competent. The book in hands of the child is capable to make life much more richly and more interestingly.
It is only a part of useful habits which will make the child's life (and then and the adult) it is much simpler. The child needs to impart all the habits which you consider correct.
