The Importance of Character Education

Today I would like to introduce you to my weekly feature on the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program. It may seem like a small thing, but positive character is the single most important thing a person can learn. So what exactly is character? Character is our very foundation; it’s the basis on which our every decision is formed.

Character vs. Personality

It’s important that we recognize the difference between personality and character, because they can be easily confused. Character is made up of our belief system, morals, ethics; it dictates how we treat others, ourselves, and our environment. Whereas personality is the way we present ourselves to others, what we like and dislike, and our social skills.

So why is character education so important?

We as a society value teaching our kids things such as reading, writing, and arithmetic; history; science; but do we put just as much value on teaching them respect for others? Do we teach our kids how to stand up for what is right when faced with negative peer pressure? Do we teach them how to actually prevent themselves from becoming a statistic?

Why is the rate of school shootings, teenage pregnancy, STD’s, domestic violence, and all forms of disrespect skyrocketing? Why is each generation facing more challenges than the generation that came before? Why do we live in a world where the terrifying possibility of a nuclear war is a reality that we must live with everyday? Is there any hope for our kids and the generations to come?

The truth is, there is hope.

And it lies in education. Education is the only answer. We have to start by educating ourselves and our kids in the ways of peace. It starts with teaching positive character to our children, our next generation of leaders, as well as the rest of us. It’s never too late to improve; to change one’s life for the better. Yes, we can actually improve our quality of life by learning peace ourselves.

How does it work?

I can tell you from experience because this program has changed my life. I have actually been taught how to make choices that will cause me no regret in the future. How to stop, think, and consider my options, and then proceed with the right choiceΒ  – one that wont cause harm to myself, others, or the environment. I have seen the effects of this program in my own life and the positive changes that followed have brought me so much hope, because I can see that this is truly the only solution to stop all wars; not only wars between nations but even down to the wars in our own minds.

I have also seen the effects this program has had on the lives of others. I have seen what this program has done to change the life of someone who was a hardened criminal, considered incorrigible, everyone had lost all hope in him; and this program has changed his life to where now he is a teacher of peace, living a very fulfilling life as a free, law-abiding citizen and teaching others how to do the same.

This program produces real results, in young and old alike. It produces the kind of results in people that society desires to see. The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program truly has the answer to solve your problem and to get peace in your life.

So please, join me each week as we explore this journey to peace!
