At Characters of Character we believe that instilling positive character traits at an early age increases a child's ability to flourish. Characters of Character has created nine characters-each one correlates with a different trait-that allow the children to connect to the character and internalize their message. Our Characters include Behavior Bear, Do'er Duck, Friendship Frog, Healthy Hippo, Manners Monkey, Respectful Rabbit, Responsible Rabbit, Self-Esteem Elephant and Warm-Hearted Walrus.
Mission: Behave at Home
Instilling good behavior in a child begins at home, but helping a child internalize what it means to behave well can be a difficult task.
That's where Characters of Character comes in. Or rather, Behavior Bear. Behavior Bear was created to help children connect with what it means to behave. Designed to help children build a firm foundation of what it means to have good behavior, Behavior Bear is a super hero you can rely on.
So, what does Behavior Bear say when it comes to behaving at home?
- Stay calm (don't throw tantrums; it's okay to walk away and take a few deep breaths if you're feeling overwhelmed)
- Respect your surroundings
- Be kind to those around you (pets included!)
- Use your manners (please & thank you go a long way!)
It's up to you to set the standard for what it means to behave at home. Create your own rules, reward positive behavior, and encourage growth! Everyone has slip ups, so be sure to use those experiences as teaching moments with your kids. Acknowledge, apologize, and try to encourage your kids to make better decisions in the future.
