Mrs. Good Choice is a former public school principal who has spent her life teaching children to make wise choices. She now wants to help YOU!
My husband and I just returned from a trip to Los Angeles, CA. to visit our son and daughter in law. Saw so many wonderful young families in our travels. We spent a whole day at Knott’s Berry Farm. It pleases me to watch and observe the interaction between parents and children in today’s world. It doesn’t matter what ethnic or economic background families come from, the important issue is teaching your children the meaning of good character.
I just read a great article entitled What’s More Important? The ABC’s or the CCC’s? Building Character – Making Memories. I agree that our children need to learn to read well, write clearly, and understand numbers and have the ability to balance a budget. However, the three CCC’s consist of Character, Commitment, and Courage.
Are you teaching your children the meaning of respect, responsibility, compassion, kindness? Do they know how to make commitments and stand by them? Does your child have the courage to stand up for what they believe and be different than the crowd?
Our job as teachers and parents is to number one, be a role model. Practice great character in all that we do. Number two teach the meaning of our expectations. And third, allow your children to make mistakes. But be there to help them to learn from their mistakes.
Thank you for all that you do! With your help, our world can become a better place.
Blessings until next time!
