Recently, the hashtag "@SignsYouWereRaisedRight" started trending on Twitter. It allowed Twitter users to share how they were being raised by A+ parents.

Whether they were taught to always be polite or to treat women with respect, come get some top-notch parenting lessons from these 19 tweets!

"They don't take off when others are in trouble"

This tweet was in reference to Texas senator Ted Cruze jetting off on a Cancun vacation when a winter disaster-ravaged his home state.

It was not a good look and he was criticized heavily for it. It goes to show that when troubles comes a-knockin', you better be a team player.

They value women

R-E-S-P-E-C-T — it's not just a song that Arthea Franklin sang. It means something, especially since women are the reason we exist today.

Parents who are teaching their sons to respect women are helping make women feel safer by preventing sexual harassment and assault.

"You don't have to raise your voice to get your point across"

ABC

You're perfectly capable of having a calm discussion with someone, like this Twitter user.

The second you raise your voice, you're basically asking for the other person to either shut down or get defensive.

They don't see a person by the color of their skin

After the racial injustices in 2020 especially, the pressure is on more than ever for parents to teach equality.

We deserve equal treatment, equal rights, and equal peace to in this world.

"You do the right thing when NO ONE IS WATCHING!"

Amen!

This Twitter user shared a powerful quote that says, "Integrity is not something you show others. It is how you behave behind their back." So. True.

They voted for Joe Biden in the past political election

This Twitter user believes that Biden was the only clear choice in the race against former president Donald Trump.

His time as president was chaotic, to say the least, ending with the Capitol Hill tragedy.

They're extremely well-mannered

It doesn't take a lot to be nice. A simple "please" and "thank you" goes a long way, especially when you're asking for something or someone does something nice for you.

Always treat others how you want to be treated!

This tweet once again shows the importance of parents teaching their children kindness.

That, or you're Canadian 'cause let's be real, we say sorry to anything and anyone.

They don't litter

Sure, it's easier to toss that piece of trash on the ground. But what good is that doing for anyone, much less the environment?

Good parents are those who instill a love for the earth early on.

"I’m happy for other people’s successes"

NBC

No green-eyed monster lives within this person! They're able to be happy for others' accomplishments and truly mean it.

That's a hard thing to do when social media breeds comparison.

They take responsibility

You won't get very far in life — not in your career or your relationships — if you're constantly shifting the blame to others.

Taking accountability for your wrongdoings helps you grow and become a better person.

"You bring something to someone’s house when they invite you over"

Good parents taught their children to never show up empty-handed.

Whether it's a bottle of wine, food, or fresh flowers, they know that the little things count.

They don't cut in line

Cutting in line is a top-tier offense anyone can do.

It's basically telling the other people in line "that my time is more important than yours." It also says I am a HUGE JERK WITH NO REGARD FOR OTHERS.

"You don’t lie, cheat or steal"

HBO

While this seems like basic parenting 101, a lot of children break these rules if it's not instilled enough.

Kids go from cheating on a test to cheating on a girlfriend or boyfriend.

They don't swear often

The only exception to this is Gordon Ramsay since we've met his mother on MasterChef and she's absolutely lovely.

For everyone else, though, swearing deserves a quarter in the swear jar or soap in the mouth!

It is so frustrating when people either forget or just don't care to do so.

An accident can almost happen when the person turns out of nowhere without informing the other drivers on the road.

They're polite

It's all too easy to forget basic manners — especially when you're in a rush.

But if you're someone who still goes out of your way to praise someone else's good manners, then you had parents who always expected the best from you!

They're smart with money

Sure, it's fun to go on shopping sprees and order Uber Eats for the third night in a row.

But making a habit of this gets you farther and farther away from those adulting goals.

They try and break the mold

If you were born in a chaotic home, your adult life can usually go one of two ways: you follow the same path as your parents or you try to give your kids the upbringing you never had.

This Twitter user clearly chose the right path.
