Kate Middleton Hopes Her Children Will Value Kindness, Respect and Honesty; Duchess Supports Children's Mental Health Week

Kate Middleton wants her growing toddlers, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to value kindness, respect and honesty. The 35-year-old royal mom said that these were taught to her by her parents as a young girl and she hopes to impress the same things on her children.

The duchess and her husband Prince William are observing Children's Mental Health Week along with Place2Be. They recently visited the Mitchell Brook Primary School where she talked to kids about kindness. According to E! Online, the duchess discussed why it's important for her to raise children around such core values as she encouraged her audience to create a supportive and friendly environment for each other

"I realize how central values like these have been to me throughout my life," the duchess said. "That is why William and I want to teach our little children, George and Charlotte, just how important these things are as they grow up," she added. "In my view, it is just as important as excelling at maths or sport."

During the visit, the Cambridge royals also sat down and talked to children and counselors, according to People. The royals were pleased to learn that with Place2Be's help, the kids are able to talk about their feelings as well as help those going through a struggle.

The royal couple commended the children for being able to articulate their worries and fears, which is integral to mental health. "If we are worried, upset, lonely or angry, the best thing to do is to talk to someone about it-whether that is your mother or father, a teacher or a friend," the duchess said. "This is what Place2Be is doing so amazingly here in your school."

Place2Be is one of U.K.'s leading mental health organization for children. The group's goal is to provide early intervention and support to ensure the emotional well-being of kids experiencing problems. The group works not only with the children but also their teachers, school staff and families, according to ABC News.
