Raising good kids has never been easy. Given today’s hectic lifestyles, demanding work schedules, distractions from the media and 24/7 connections, it’s harder than ever.
Many parents find themselves taking short cuts—making demands, threatening, pleading with and even bribing kids to “be good.” Such halo tactics may work in the short term but do nothing to help build kids’ character.
The V Channel’s (TVC) core belief is simple: “If we want to raise good kids we have to take the time and teach them how to be good.”
It all begins with the VIRTUES FROM “A” TO “Z”.
HELPING TO RAISE “VIRTUOUS” KIDS.
TVC’s mission is to engage and inform parents, teachers and coaches—everyone who cares for children—about the power of virtues, and to give them simple and entertaining ways to inspire kids to:
- Overcome adversity and achieve their goals and dreams
- Rise above negative influences to stay healthy and wholesome
- Be honest and trustworthy people in an often dishonest and deceitful world
At TVC, we talk with parents, teachers and kids of all ages to explore the many choices facing youth today, and how choosing virtues results in positive life experiences.
We bring in experts to share their thoughts and recommendations on parenting, coaching and character education.
We put together stellar creative teams to tell stories and produce original content that inspire young people to be their very best, whatever their ‘best’ might be.
BUILDING THE FUTURE.
Just as we can teach a toddler to stack building blocks, we can start teaching kids virtues at an early age. Our “V”TOONS Coloring Pages is a fun way to start. We plan on going beyond crayons by offering digital coloring apps and online games to engage boys and girls through adolescence and into the teens years.
Teens want positive guidance to learn how to make responsible and moral choices, but they don’t want to be preached to or judged. Our Student Filmmaker Project produces “V”VIDEOS that offer real world guidance based on nonreligious virtues that teens can identify with. We don’t try and persuade teens to be ‘nice’ or act like sweet little angels; so you’ll never see a halo emoji at TVC. In fact, we may drop a few f-bombs, because we believe teens want an authentic, unfettered voice to guide, direct and companion them.
TVC AIMS TO INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE TO:
- Choose tolerance instead of hatred
- Exercise peacefulness over violence
- Practice generosity rather than selfishness
- Be responsible and trustworthy
- Show respect for all
- Listen with compassion
- Help with kindness
- Speak the truth
- Stand up for justice
- Make forgiveness an everyday decision
- Have the confidence to cope with whatever happens in life
- And much more
NOT JUST KID STUFF.
TVC is redefining what being ‘virtuous’ means.
