kids and education podcast

On today’s episode, we are going to discuss why character building, not education, is the most important thing. Head knowledge is important, but heart knowledge is even more important and required to lead a productive, meaningful, and significant life. I’m going to share 5 character traits you need to be teaching your children. Later on the show, one of our All Pro Dad Team Captains, Andy Mayer, will discuss our breakfast program that combines education and character building.

5 Character Traits to Teach Your Children

1. Integrity: Building up a child who knows what’s right and then chooses to do the right thing, no matter how hard the circumstances may be.

2. Honesty: Always model truth to your children. If we want our kids to be honest, then we must be honest ourselves.

3. Humility: Humility has more to do with how you think of others. Humility doesn’t mean that we think less of ourselves; it just means that we think about ourselves less and others more.

4. Courage: Courage is the ability to do the right thing, all the time, no matter how painful or uncomfortable it might be. Let’s encourage our children to stand up for what’s right, stand strong when attacked, and stand out in the crowd!

5. Love: We were created to love God and love others. That’s the most important thing we can teach our children.
