Plan not-so-random acts of kindness. Kids need to know that helping others is an everyday practice, not a visit-a-soup-kitchen-at-the-holidays grand gesture. Challenge yours to complete small tasks every week, like throwing away another kid's trash at lunch or raking a neighbor's lawn. Training your children to focus on others helps curb entitlement. "Gratitude becomes woven into who they are," says Jeffrey J. Froh, a coauthor of Making Grateful Kids.

What do you do when your son loves Disney's "Frozen"? You bring out your Elsa costume and dance around the living room to "Let it Go" with him of course.

When seeing how much his 4-year-old son, Dexter, loved "Frozen," Ørjan Burøe, a Norweigian comedian, told CBS News he purchased two Elsa costumes from Ebay, and the pair danced around the living room to "Let it Go."

They both twirled around the living room in their dresses and mimicked dance moves from "Frozen" in a synchronized father-son dance.

The dad posted a video of the routine to social media, and at the time of this writing, it has been liked over 400,000 times. The caption read: "Mom is gone, no stress."

The post had also been shared by Kristen Bell, who plays Anna in "Frozen." She captioned it "Immediate. Tears. Everywhere. #mykindaguy"

Another video Burøe posted shows the pair dancing to "Let It Go" and Dexter wearing a long blonde wig.

Burøe told CBS that his son thinks of Elsa as a superhero.

"Just like kids don't see color of skin," the dad told CBS. "He just sees something that's great. For him, Elsa is a superhero."

He added that he wanted his kid to not be tied down with societal expectations.

Model brave behavior. Want confident kids? They will be less likely to be easily flustered if they see you taking healthy risks. "A lot of adults won't go to a movie solo because they would be embarrassed to be seen sitting alone. So do it, then talk to your kids about it," says David Allyn, the author of I Can't Believe I Just Did That. Similarly, if your kids see you laugh when you realize that your shirt has been on backwards all morning, maybe they'll giggle, instead of feeling embarrassed, when it happens to them.

"It's important to teach children that you can do whatever you want to do and not put prejudice all over them," Burøe told the news outlet. "Soon enough you will find out who you're going to be in life."
