Today we hear a lot about the decline of moral standards, the lack of respect for others and the culture of self. But our society does not have to be this way, and there is a growing movement to reverse these tendencies through the construction of the character. This is not a “quick fix”.

But it is crucial that these messages are reinforced in the home; After all, children learn by copying others. Then, when they realize that a good character is important to their parents, they are more likely to qualify for themselves.
