How to Promote Character Values

PinExt How to Promote Character Values

In order for kids to truly understand concepts related to character development, schools and other programs use various techniques. Activities and events are planned to get students thinking and practicing values such as respect, peace, caring, compassion and other character traits.

Most schools have programs that bring character values into their culture and climate. This may include a school-wide behavior plan, character trait awareness days, specific ways of handling bullying, and other practices to encourage positive choices.

Developing good character traits is a home/school/community/world project. Parents and teachers need to be good role models, just as students need to become role models for kids coming after them. There are many others who can inspire character awareness such as religious leaders, government officials, national figures, and others.

One way of providing an easy exchange of thoughts, feeling, and ideas about values and ethical issues with children is through storybook characters. In the book, Listening to the Mukies and Their Character Building Adventures, these multicultural characters teach children important character traits. They address topics of self-esteem, prejudice, mutual understanding and respect, rights and responsibilities in a society, and peaceful co-existence.

Listening to the Mukies is an easy-to-read book for children 8 - 12 that reinforces accepted character traits. You can use this link to buy a copy for your child or classroom today.

Here are questions from one of the stories in the character skills book, Listening to the Mukies and Their mukiesbook Making a Difference in a Troubled WorldCharacter Building Adventures:

Do you think one individual can make a difference and influence a community?

How can rumors create conflict?

What are alternatives to violence and war?

Why do you think the Mukies were able to live without conflicts?

One of the characters in the book expressed the beliefs and hopes of St. Francis of Assisi in his prayer:

My wish is that peace may begin with me.
Where there is hatred, may I create love.
Where there is discord, may I create unity.
Where there is doubt, may I have faith.
Where there is falsehood, may I find truth.
Where there is ignorance, may I find learning.
Where there is despair, may I create hope.
Where there is sadness, may I bring joy.
May I realize that it is not as important to be understood,
as it is to understand,
and to be loved, as it is to love.
May I realize that it is in giving that I receive,
and in pardoning that I am pardoned.

This is adapted from the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

Character Building and Children

PinExt Character Building and Children

Many schools are starting out their fall semester with a heavy emphasis on demonstrating good character traits such as kindness, politeness, respect, cooperation, generosity, helpfulness, tolerance and others. Students are told that the only person in charge of their character is herself or himself.

One way you can help your student, or others, become more aware of practicing good character traits is through interactive sharing of information about character building situations. Children from ages 8-14 can really relate to the problems and situations in the book, Listening to the Mukies and Their Character Building Adventures.

This interactive approach works because, when it is read with an adult, the Mukies, as these friendly clever creatures are called, provide the basis for an easy exchange of thoughts, feelings, and ideas about values and ethical issues. Then you can discuss them and help clarify your child’s thinking about these important issues.

As Warren Buffett says, ‘An individual needs three traits to be successful on the job: intelligence, work ethic and character. The first two without the last will not cut it.’ We want students to grow up to be responsible caring individuals with a concern and respect for others.
