Why Christian Parents need to be Active with Character Education

Character Education – intentionally teaching our children about character has been such an integral part of raising our children.  

How do you define Character?   My definitions are:

  • Character choices are the actions that reflect our value system.  
  • Character is the outworking of the beliefs that are in the heart.
  • Character is the quality of your response to people or circumstances.

 As a Christian family we have to come to understand that being a person of character is not a matter of faith – though our faith of course shapes our values.  Every person – regardless of faith has character (both good and bad).   Character is a moral issue – character is the words we give the actions that are based on moral choices.

Character Quotes

When you make choices based on moral values you establish strong character in your life.

When we praise the action – we are parenting behaviour.  When we praise the belief or value behind the action – we are parenting the heart.

Character is developed not by knowing what is right but by daily making right choices.

Teaching our children character is giving them heart-based life skills.
