Character Development

Character Development

As children and teens develop into adults, most parents and educators strive to see them demonstrate good character, such as respect, responsibility, fairness, compassion, kindness, generosity and integrity. But helping kids understand what good character traits look like, and how to live this way is an important part of that development. These tools and resources are designed to show children, teens, and adults what it means to model good character.
