I think people have different definitions of what a well-rounded kid means to them. It may vary from family to family.

The most important thing a parent can do is to establish a solid support system at home. This means showing children how much they're loved, respected and cared for. Encourage their interests. Doing all of this builds a child's self confidence.

Don't underestimate the power of setting a good example for children. Model appropriate behavior, show them the willingness of trying new things, how to disagree respectfully, and practice etiquette.

Children crave positive feedback so applauding and praising their efforts go a long way in making them feel special.

Establish routines so they know what to expect. Children like predictability and feel secure when it's in place.
