WHAT DOES ‘BE VIRTUOUS’ MEAN?

For kids age 3 to 103, being virtuous means you are choosing to practice virtues in your daily life and you are trying your best to be an ethical, principled, exemplary, law-abiding, honest, honorable, decent responsible and respectable human being.

Virtues from “A” to “Z” include:
Assertiveness, Compassion, Confidence, Detachment, Determination, Excellence, Generosity, Honesty, Idealism, Justice, Moderation, Obedience, Patience, Peacefulness, Reliability, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline, Tact, Tolerance, Trustworthiness, Truthfulness, Unity, Zeal and many more.

Virtuous kids overcome adversity and achieve their goals and dreams, but not at the expense of people, animals or the environment. They rise above negative influences to stay healthy and wholesome, even when they indulge a bit too much. Virtuous kids stumble and fall, and get back up again. They are champions whether they win or lose. They are courageous leaders and obedient followers. Virtuous kids are honest and trustworthy in an often dishonest and deceitful world.

Being virtuous does NOT mean you are religious, virginal, or that you’re squeaky clean. It’s not about being ‘perfect’. When a toddler says, “Mine!” she can learn about caring and generosity to share her toys. Kids may become irritated while waiting for a game to download and later show patience during a music lesson. Teens can wear outrageous, attention-getting fashions and still practice humility and modesty. Even a murderer on death row can practice compassion. Everyone can express his or her beliefs or non-beliefs, opinions, sexual orientation, gender preference, body art, unique styles and ways of being in the world. It’s all good when we choose virtues.

VIRTUES ARE FOR EVERYONE.

Even if you smoke, drink and cuss, you can still choose virtues to be your very best.rebel-virtuous

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.

Thank goodness the old-school way to deal with profanity by washing a kid’s mouth out with soap is no longer acceptable.

The new-school approach is using The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project, simple but highly effective ways to raise virtuous kids.

*The V Channel doesn’t recommend smoking, drinking and cussing. If a person chooses to do so, we suggest they also choose moderation.
