Creating Character Education in Schools

by Bob Johnson

Character education in schools is where most children will probably develop their character. To paraphrase one educator, character education in schools is making a concentrated effort to advance beneficial qualities that are both good for the person or child and also for society in general. So if the child cannot get these qualities in the home then they will have to acquire them elsewhere.

Words of the Day

Here are several wise words that might help you, my dedicated readers, to think about.

Remember that what's right is not always popular and what's popular is not always right (Anonim)

If you want to do something and you feel it in your bones that's the right thing to do, do it!. Intuition is often as important as the acts (Anonim)

Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out (James B. Conant)

A Review of LifeLock -- Part of the Solution, or the Problem?

by Jed Jensen

Are you secure? Do you worry about your security? What do you worry about most? Terrorists? Armed burglars? Your number one security concern should be identity theft.
This is the reason:

There are people all over the world working outside of the official economy. These are not team players. They are free riding parasites, sucking their living out of honest folks. Now some of these people are driven to do what they do out of desperation, but that's not our concern here.  Have you ever been a victim of identity theft? Has a friend been a victim? Then you know how difficult it can be to defend yourself against creditors, bill collectors, and lawyers, even though you didn't do anything they are accusing you of. It can ruin your life. It can lead you to large debts. It can force you to declare bankruptcy.

Komunikasikan masalahmu !

Sering orang mengalami hambatan dalam mencapai tujuan hanya karena gagal menyampaikan apa yang sebenarnya yang diinginkannya.  Banyak persoalan kecil yang semakin menumpuk menjadi persoalan yang lebih besar hanya karena kita tidak mengkomunikasikannya dengan pihak lain. Persoalan atau hambatan yang kita anggap sangat berat, bisa jadi merupakan hal yang sangat kecil bagi orang lain.

7 Things To Enjoy Doing With Your Family

by Frances Chan

When was the last time you had great fun with your family? Family is always the most valuable thing in life, so stand up and plan to have fun with your family.

Going to the zoo is definitely my number-one pick for family activities. Other than visiting animals, most zoos nowadays have rides that you can enjoy with your family. Bring your own snacks if you want to save some money. To add some fun, let your kids be the photographers for the day (buy a disposable camera if you don't want your kids to break your expensive digital one) and you might be surprised by how creative your kids can be.

Having a picnic at the park is also a good activity for your family. Even though you might not be really keen on outdoor activities, you can still enjoy your time by playing together after having your lunch. For example, you can play lawn games or bring a horseshoe game for your family. Afterward, you can enjoy your private time chatting with your sweetheart and let your children play on the playground themselves.

Teruslah Melangkah !

Tidak ada seorangpun yang dapat melangkah dengan dua langkah sekaligus, apa lagi seribu langkah. Yang ada adalah langkah kecil dan langkah besar. Kemajuan seseorang merupakan kumpulan dari langkah-langkah yang dilakukannya.  Setiap melangkah, pasti harus dilakukan selangkah demi selangkah.  Yang membedakan seseorang sampai tujuan adalah besar kecil langkah setiap langkah, kecepatan bergerak dari satu langkah ke langkah berikutnya, dan konsistensi melangkah menuju tujuan. Kemajuan merupakan kumpulan langkah-langkah yang searah menuju satu titik tujuan.
