You get a child, and all of a sudden you're a parent. But how do you bring it up? Annelies Wiersma discovered Linda Kavelin-Popov's books with their 52 inspiring virtues such as courage, enthusiasm and responsibility. She is a Virtues ProjectTM Master Facilitator and gives courses based on Linda Kavelin-Popov's educative methods. In this cheerful book with its comic-strip drawings she brings the theory to life with examples from her courses. And tells us in a touching, funny and intimate way about the practice she knows best: raising her own son. Linda Kavelin Popov says in the foreword: What do all parents want for their children? For them to be happy and for them to be good. The two are deeply connected, because a good character leads to a positive destiny. Every parent also needs tools to bring out the best in each child - to awaken their kindness, respect, flexibility, compassion, and even their joy. Annelies Wiersma offers the honest, open perspective of a mother applying the tools and strategies of The Virtues Project and my book, The Family Virtues Guide to make them deeply useful and totally accessible in everyday life. I heartily recommend that all parents read her book and enjoy her insights, her humour, and her practical wisdom.

Teaching Virtues

This book about teaching virtues is based on a fundamental American Indian view that sees the universe as intimate relationships of living things that are vitally affected by attributes called universal virtues. These virtues cross all boundaries and cannot be "taught" in isolation. They are woven into all subjects that are worth learning. Part 1 provides psychological perspectives that underpin the book's approach. Part 2 shows how various pedagogical strategies can turn subject matter into significant relationships. Since teaching virtues is ultimately about relationships, a natural way to embed awareness of virtues unfolds when there is a consistent commitment to teaching virtues daily. Chapters introduce the lesson plan format and the conceptual model, explore the meanings of vital terminology, and discuss assessment strategies. Part 3 realizes the actual interconnections between virtues and content knowledge, with chapters that address social studies, language arts, science, physical education, mathematics, and the arts. These chapters show how the process works to truly integrate content and character education. Part 4 offers an opportunity for profound reflection on the issues and challenges surrounding effective character education. (Contains 75 references.) (TD)

After fifteen years of rising to the pinnacle of the hospitality industry, Chip Conley's company was suddenly undercapitalized and overexposed in the, post-9/11 economy. For relief and inspiration, Conley, the CEO and founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, turned to psychologist Abraham Maslow's iconic Hierarchy of Needs. This book explores how Conley's company "the second largest boutique hotelier in the world" overcame the storm that hit the travel industry by applying Maslow's theory to what Conley identifies as the key Relationship Truths in business with Employees, Customers and Investors. Part memoir, part theory, and part application, the book tells of Joie de Vivre's remarkable transformation while providing real world examples from other companies and showing how readers can bring about similar changes in their work and personal lives. Conley explains how to understand the motivations of employees, customers, bosses, and investors, and use that understanding to foster better relationships and build an enduring and profitable corporate culture.

What do indoor picnics and funny face contests have to do with loving Jesus? More than you realize! As a mom in the throes of parenting, Courtney DeFeo believes that instilling virtues in children starts with laughter, not lecture. That perspective propelled her to create this idea-packed book, in which she offers motivating reflections, real-life stories, and a sandbox full of inventive ways to help you turn your kids’ hearts toward God. Each chapter focuses on one virtue that is key for developing your child’s character. Along with insights into how this virtue plays out in the nitty-gritty of life, Courtney includes a memory verse, activity ideas, and discussion questions to reinforce that virtue throughout the month. Here you’ll find a full year of ways to draw your children closer to God through delightful antics like Family Olympics, One Fancy Feast, and Light ’Em Up. In This House, We Will Giggle shows you how to capture the hearts of your children through fun—so that they experience the goodness of Christ, the joy of following Him, and the difference they can make in the lives of others.
