How To Be A Teenager Of Virtue
Many of you feel like you have been abandoned and fragmented off. You live in a drastically different world than the one your parents grew up in. There are a lot more pressures on you.
How To Coach Virtue First
Sports stand out as an important counteractive tool to help kids fill the void left by society’s abandonment. Sports is a hinge-pin sociological tool to teach our kids life lessons, build character, and show them how to live a virtuous life.
How To Teach Virtue First
A “Virtuous” teacher looks beyond and through the layers of external performance, behavior, attitude, dress, or anything else that would shield a child from being vulnerable and known. They are then able to appeal to the inner sanctuary of the student who is attempting to find their place in a generally hostile and unforgiving world.
How to Minister Virtue First
In order for Virtue First to work, someone needs to take the lead in each youth group. Typically this is a “Youth Minister”. A real leader personifies the certitude of the creed.
How to Parent Virtue First
We need to communicate clearly to our kids that we love them unconditionally, that we will be there and stand by them no matter what happens, and if they want, we can help them achieve a transformed existence.
How to Work Virtue First
In addition to addressing the cost of health care, the current economic crisis has intensified the focus on productivity, with organizational leaders understanding that increasing and maintaining employee productivity will be essential to meeting shareholder expectations.
