The Family Virtues Guide (as seen on Oprah) is at the core of The Virtues Project, an international effort to make virtues education a central part of both classrooms and family life. It is one of the many things that inspired us to start Virtues101.com. We are proud to support their efforts and carry their book and virtue cards. The Family Virtues Guide is subtitled, Simple Ways to Bring out the Best in our Children and Ourselves, and that is exactly what it does. Written by by Linda Kavelin-Popov with Dan Popov, Ph. D. and John Kavelin
This book is intended for parents and children to use together to nurture togetherness. The first section includes five simple strategies for raising children to live meaningful lives and to develop the virtues of their character. The second section contains 52 virtues, one for each week of the year, describing each virtue in simple terms, giving role play situations, how to practice it, and signs of success. It will engage family members of all ages in an exciting process of growth and discovery.
This book shows you how to: – Learn the language of integrity and self-esteem – Understand the five roles parents’ play – Discover ways to introduce sacred time into family life – Help children to make moral choices
“The Virtues Guide is no sanctimonious tome. Its aim is to help pass on some basic values for living together, shared by cultures and faiths around the globe.” Seattle Times
