"Character is the entity, the individuality of the person, shining from every window of the soul, either as a beam of purity, or as a clouded ray that betrays the impurity within. The contest between light and darkness, right and wrong, goes on; day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment, our characters are being formed, and this is the all-important question which comes to us in accents ever growing fainter as we journey from the cradle to the grave, "Shall those characters be good or bad?”

-William Jennings Bryan

"You’re worried about your kids watching politicians and mimicking them. I promise you that your kids are watching you more closely than they’re watching any politician. So take your personal sins seriously." - Carey Nieuwhof

Helen Keller said, "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

How does that relate to your child? Sometimes children experience difficulty, either through their own choices, someone else's choices, or simply the circumstances that come their way.

Carefully consider when you should rescue them from pain or difficulty when their safety is not at risk. Maybe that difficult circumstance you allow them to work through will help them develop courage or perseverance that will serve them well later in life. It may be a mistake to always rescue our children from difficulty or the consequences of their own choices. Our culture often thinks that children should never experience difficulty. Life has difficulty. Strong children know how to face difficulty.

Developing the character of your children is vital to their growth and development. Wise words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

Character is built in times of difficulty. Do your kids a favor and allow them to fail in safe situations, where you are nearby to guide and assist them. Let them know they can rise above the disappointment and try again.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

― Maya Angelou

The foundation of effective leadership is character. Nothing else has more impact. Nothing else has greater reach. And nothing else can make up for its lack—not education, experience, talent, or contacts. Every now and then you hear a story about someone’s character that brings this principle into s…

“Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.” — Ralph Marston

The character virtue, perseverance, carries us through the stresses of everyday life as well as those times when we just feel like we can't carry on. In the last 24 hours, I have watched my son, as well as other runners, persevere and work towards the finish of a 100 mile ultra-marathon. He trained for the race, but the mental strength, displayed as perseverance, has been nothing short of amazing.

Today, I heard a very well known media tycoon, who shall remain unnamed (but her initials are Oprah), say how important it is to teach your children "values." Actually, you don't teach "values" to your children.

You help instill character into the lives of your children, and from that foundation of strong, positive character, combined with your example, our children form values.

For example, respect is a character virtue. Honoring the elderly is a value that stems from respect. Let's start with teaching positive character, so our children form honorable values. Strong character results in strong values.

Just HOPING our children will develop into strong, resilient young people is not enough. It takes deliberate strategies to instill character.

Inscribed on the exterior walls near the front door of the Oregon State Capitol Building:

"The mind of man knows no employment more worthy of its powers than the quest of righteousness in human affairs; no goal of its labours that is superior to the discovery of the good in the guidance of life."

Think on that, friends. Teach your children goodness.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values; that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control."

It was true when he lived. It is true now. Your efforts at instilling conscience and character in the lives of the children around you will produce a strong foundation, allowing them to move forward in life.

What is compassion? Compassion requires thinking about the needs/feelings of another person, putting yourself “in another person’s shoes,” deferring your own wants/needs to meet another person’s needs, and recognizing others’ needs by carefully listening to them. Then, once the needs of another are realized, one must move to action in order to help meet the need. That is true compassion. Recognizing a need without moving to action is not true compassion. True compassion requires action.

A noted character education expert said it well when he explained that having strong character involves knowing what is good, loving what is good, and doing what is good.

We demonstrate positive character when we put others’ wants and needs ahead of our own, thinking of the needs of those around us, and helping to meet those needs, instead of only thinking about what we want. When we consider the good of others and put aside, or postpone the meeting of our own desires to help meet the needs of another person, we are showing strength of character.

Let us help you mold that strong character in the children in your lives. Visit www.buildstrongkids.com

In these busy times, it is far easier to park your children in front of the television or computer, and then assume that somehow, they will grow into responsible people.

Without your teaching and positive example, it will not happen and there will be disappointment. We have provided material contained in our publication the hope that in some small way, we can come alongside you and support you as your teach your children.
