8 Building Blocks

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

  Last month we examines how a child’s character is ruined and many of us could be led to discouragement because guess what? We are not perfect and may not have even realize that our action or lack thereof is the culprit. That may be a good think because now it causes us to seek what to do. Now you may be thinking, ‘This is supposed to be an education blog, why so much focus on character building?’ I have been an educator for 25 years and believe me, if parents focused on character building the first few years of...

Aiding and Abetting the Formation of Your Child’s Character

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

Have you ever heard of the term, “You reap what you sow?” It certainly is true. Would you expect to reap fresh ripe apples after sowing seeds to an orange tree? Or how about reaping walnuts after sowing an almond tree?

“No…no…”, is what I witness many toddlers saying to their parents. “Ha Ha…how cute,” is the response. “He will grow out of it…” The reality is…he won’t.   Character is not developed by chance. Even though one outburst of a child does not mean that he will eventually become a menace to society, few realize that character is formed by the repetition of acts, which in turn becomes habits. Habits are what mold the character either for good or for evil.   Babies are naturally selfish. It is in their nature. It is our moral makeup. Therefore in order to develop a...

A Greater Treasure

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

What is the only treasure children can take with them into adulthood and beyond? It is the only treasure worth more than silver or gold. It does not consist of mental ability nor genius. It is unaffected by various panics or failures. Integrity of character, firm principles, and sound morals are the greatest want of the world today. Your child properly trained will be the influence that the world will seek after.  One’s true character is a quality of the soul which reveals itself in everyday life.  Such traits as integrity, firmness, and perseverance are dispositions that cannot be bought...
