Positive Character is not something that a child is born with, it has to be taught. Children are constantly learning. They learn when we sit down and teach them, and they learn by watching others. Every influence they are exposed to has an impact, whether they observe their parents calmly discussing issues in the household, or they sit in front of the television watching violence. These influences shape their character.
It is never too late to start teaching peace. No matter what the circumstances, or who is involved, everyone can benefit from The Peaceful Solution. Children and adults alike will see positive changes in their lives when the principles within The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program are applied.
As adults, we must apply these principles in our own lives now to begin to change the violence around us to peace, and begin teaching the children around us these same principles. Our children are our future. What we teach them now is what they will build on.
It is so important to establish a foundation of moral excellence by teaching right from wrong and positive ways to deal with conflict in our lives. It is a given that every child born will face conflicts and have to make choices on a daily basis. If we can give them the tools they will need to be able to weigh their choices and choose to act in a positive manner, then they will have that foundation to be upright, moral citizens in the societies of tomorrow.
Conflict Resolution… Self- Control… Honesty… Respect.
These are all character traits that must be learned. They are the tools that can be used to foster peace… but until now, they were not put together in a single program that could start with the basics and build to provide complete character education.
Applied properly, the lessons taught in this program build a solid foundation. It has been designed so that you can start at any age and see results. No one is too young or too old to benefit from what is included in The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program.
We all know what kind of world we live in… but we can live in a better world.
It is time to work together to make this world the safe haven that we all want… a place where our children can play outside without fear, where women can walk alone in safety, and where no one is a victim of someone else’s whims.
That world is possible through everyone practicing the basic, simple principles taught in The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program.
There is always something that you as an individual can do to help to promote peace.
The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program Curriculum consists of student workbooks, teacher’s manuals, and audio and visual aids where necessary to complete the lessons. Each grade level contains lesson plans that are simple and easy to follow. Individual Lessons are beautifully illustrated and teach the most basic and fundamental aspects of moral values in a “fun to learn” setting.
From the basic concepts of ownership and respect for others, to the deeper issues of peer-pressure and how to make decisions and set goals, The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program teaches both young and old alike the building blocks of great moral character.
This program covers in-depth what the students need to know in order to handle the situations they encounter on a daily basis. Each grade level has been designed with age-specific real world examples and activities that allow the students to be confident in the skills they are learning.
Using picture flashcards for the young, and poems, songs and descriptive narratives on accompanying audio cassettes for all ages insures that the students will not only listen, but will be eager to participate in class discussions and activities.
There are puzzles and role playing activities, art and even short research assignments for the upper grade levels, that allow the students to go beyond what they are hearing during the lessons and apply the concepts they learn to the world around them.
The lessons are designed to have built-in flexibility to fit current events and different classroom situations. Schools, Daycare Centers, Homeschoolers, and other institutions have reported success with this program. Each grade level can be obtained individually, as well as student workbooks.
