Happy House Good ChoicesTM Character Building Program

Building social skills for life

Children begin to develop social habits starting at an early age. At the core of learning the social skills they need to get along with others are the choices they make every day. The Good Choices Program is designed to help children learn to respect each other, their teachers and their parents so they can get along better with others and get a head start in life.

Respect, honesty, responsibility and caring

For a child growing up in today's world, learning to take responsibility for his mistakes or how to respect his fellow children are not always lessons taught in the home. Educators and youth group leaders are faced with children who lack an understanding of moral principles to guide their lives in a positive direction. The Good Choices Character Building Program provides an effective means of character education to fill that void.

An effective character education program

The Good Choices Character Building Program is built around the 21 chapters of the book "How to Make Good Choices." Each of these chapters contains principles designed to foster honesty, responsibility, respect and caring by showing children how they can make good choices and how their choices will affect themselves and others.

The program engages the students in activities that challenge them to make decisions about situations they face in life. In this way, children are taught to evaluate right from wrong as well as the consequences of their actions.
