Undoubtedly, humility is one of the essential values in the education of children. Being humble means respecting others, not underestimating anyone, not considering yourself superior and, above all, having a permanent attitude of learning.

What it is and how to teach humility to children
If you talk to a child about humility, the most normal thing is that he does not understand it. The word humility, which comes from Latin, means 'to recognize the limitations of oneself'. That is, recognize the errors and weaknesses.
For a child to understand the meaning of humility, parents can take advantage of real and everyday situations: Aprove - Take advantage if your child plays as a team to explain
that does not always win and that accepting defeat and congratulating the winner is humility. - Teach your child to win, without ridiculing or laughing at those who lose. And explain to her that that is humility.
- Grandparents are fantastic transmitters of values such as humility.
Teach your child to respect older people and listen to them. And tell them that that is also humility. - If your child gets upset about getting bad grades and thinks that his teacher has a "mania" to him,
teach him to accept the suspense and to try harder. And explain that that is also humility. - When your child sees small animals such as butterflies or insects, explain that
none of them is less important than the larger ones . Teach him to respect them and he will understand that that is also humility.-
Asking for forgiveness is not an easy task . However, it is an act of reflection and necessary repentance. Teach your child that it is very important to ask for forgiveness to amend an action. If at any time hit your friend. If he said something ugly. If he fought with his brother. Explain that you should ask for forgiveness. And that this is also humility.Because humility is accepting that one of you can fall and you always have to get up. It is learning to lose and also to win. It is to respect those who have more experience and be tolerant of differences. It is having an open mind and being willing to learn throughout life.
