The character education movement, implemented by educators around the world, is an incredibly successful and growing phenomenon. When important character attributes like honesty, integrity, and fairness are modelled and taught, kids develop an inner compass that continues to guide them in a positive direction. Helping parents with their crucial participation at home has been the missing link—until now.
