No matter how young or how old, being “virtuous” means we are choosing to practice the VIRTUES FROM “A” TO “Z” in our daily lives. It means we are trying our best to be our best, whatever our best might be.
Being a ‘virtuous’ parent means we are practicing The Five Strategies of The Virtues ProjectTM, simple but highly effective ways to raise awesome kids. When a toddler says, “Mine!” we can teach her about caring and generosity to share her toys. When an adolescent becomes irritated while waiting for a game to download we can inspire him to choose patience. Teens can wear outrageous, attention-getting fashions and still practice humility and modesty. Everybody can express his or her beliefs, opinions, sexual orientation, gender preference, body art, unique styles and ways of being in the world and still be ‘virtuous’.
Being ‘virtuous’ doesn’t mean we are religious, virginal, or that we’re squeaky clean. Props to Tough Mudders everywhere!
Being ‘virtuous’ doesn’t mean we’re perfect. As work-in-process human beings, we can discover the power of virtues to heal and rehabilitate. We can make amends for our past choices and help others, especially our kids, learn from our mistakes.
VIRTUES ARE FOR EVERYONE.
Even if we smoke, drink and cuss, we can still choose virtues to be our very best.*
LET’S INSPIRE OUR KIDS TO BE ‘VIRTUOUS’ (WITHOUT SMOKING, DRINKING AND CUSSING).
Our children grow up very fast these days. Before we know it we may find they are making choices we don’t approve of. Instead of shaming them or instilling fear in their hearts and minds, let’s talk with them about the power of virtues and inspire them to rise above negative influences.
There are many resources that parents can share with their kids, to get the facts about cigarettes, alcohol and drug abuse.
*The V Channel doesn’t recommend smoking, drinking and cussing. If a person chooses to do so, we suggest they also choose moderation.
