What kind of adults will our children become? What I have often struggled
with is my desire to have helped the children in my life to become
good people. I want children to be people who know what doing the right
thing means, who have the strength of their convictions, who have convictions,
and the personal integrity and wherewithal to act upon those convictions.
I want children to have character and integrity. We have a direct impact
on the future of our children and our society. Learn to grow children
of character and conscience.
Bringing Back Integrity:
Theirs and Ours
Integrity is the elusive ability to practice what we believe. Important
to all of us, yes, but too often lost in our dealings with children.
Rethink your own actions and beliefs and rediscover your own integrity.
What is the difference between a reward and a bribe? Are all children
special? Do we ever want our children to experience emotional hardship
and pain? Do your own actions follow the Golden Rule, the Law of the
Harvest, your own integrity? Be comfortable and confident in your dealings
& Integrity: The Links to True Discipline, Character Development
Accountability is the glue that binds discipline, character and self-esteem.
No more “dumbing down” discipline, no more “don’t
blame me,” no more backing away from feeling wrong when we do
wrong. Connection: the glue that binds us to the children. Children
behave differently when they feel connected to you and to the other
children. Integrity: the glue that binds it all and sets us on the
right path with children. It is time to get it right!
Children, Challenging Times
Dealing with children is not easy and more and more children seem
to need more and more from us. Let’s take a quick look at how
we discipline our children affects their behavior not only now but
in the future. Discipline’s root word means teach. When children
misbehave, it is our job to teach them what they need to know: skills,
life lessons, and guiding principles.
