Be sure to teach 'em "Be Kind To Your Parents" which I am surprised not to find in the DT:

(Harold Rome)

Be kind to your parents
Though they don't deserve it
Remember they're grownups,
A difficult stage of life.
They're apt to be nervous
And over-excited,
Confused from their daily toil and strife.
Just keep in mind,
Though it seems odd, I know,
Most parents once were children long ago- incredible!
So treat them with patience,
And sweet understanding,
In spite of the foolish things they do-
Someday you may wake up,
And find you're a grownup too!

I taught this to my schoolkids and had an irate parent in my room the very next day! You can, too!
