in the family. Educate children to get to know children and how to treat children according to their
needs and development. By recognizing and understanding their children, parents as educators in
the family will be able to increase their potential as optimally as possible, especially in forming
positive behaviors. Behavior is any form of action taken or planned. While positive behavior is an
action that is in accordance with the character, culture, norms and noble values in the community.

role. Along with the times and the assimilation of culture in the era of globalization of positive
behavior in children such as manners, tolerance, caring for others and respect for others is
