11. Be Forgiving
We all make mistakes. You’re going to have to forgive a lot of them but, in doing so, you’re setting yourself up to be forgiven when you mess up as well.

12. Cultural Identity
No matter what your ethnicity might be, especially if you have a bi- or multicultural family, make an effort to teach your children about their roots and keep the cultural traditions from your own childhood alive. They’ll feel connected to something even greater than family: community and culture.
