At The V Channel, being ‘virtuous’ means we are choosing to practice the VIRTUES FROM “A” to “Z” in our daily life, and we are trying our best to be ethical, principled, exemplary, law-abiding, honest, honorable, decent responsible and respectable human beings.
When a toddler says, “Mine!” we can teach her about caring and generosity to share her toys.
When our adolescent becomes irritated while waiting for a game to download we can inspire them 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 necessarily mean you are religious, virginal, or that you’re squeaky clean.
Being ‘virtuous’ doesn’t mean you’re perfect. Louis C.K. made some serious mistakes in the past. Yet we believe he is inherently a ‘virtuous’ person. In fact, we give him props for his honesty and truthfulness for his response to accusations of sexual misconduct: ‘These Stories Are True.’
As work-in-process ‘virtuous’ human beings, we can discover the power of virtues to heal and rehabilitate. We can make amends for our behavior and help others, especially our kids, learn from our teachable moments.
VIRTUES ARE FOR EVERYONE.
Even if you smoke, drink and cuss, you can still choose virtues to be your 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.
Learn 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.
STAY TUNED TO THE V CHANNEL.
As we raise additional funding we’ll produce new content and improve our website. Our goal is to build a world-class online destination and social media network dedicated to inspiring the practice of virtues.
