Are you raising nice kids? A Harvard psychologist gives five ways to raise children to be kind. How do we support children at home and in our schools? How are you acting as a role model in each area? This is the essence of Value and Character Development. These are not necessarily taught in lesson format, they are observed through modeling and mirroring each other.

"1. Make caring for others a priority

2. Provide opportunities for children to practice caring and gratitude

3. Expand your child's circle of concern

4. Be a strong moral role model and mentor

5. Guide children in managing destructive feelings" -excerpt from the article below
