DEVELOPING GREAT KIDS: FROM TEMPERAMENT TO CHARACTER
About the Day:
For Parents and Educators!
Enjoy a feature presentation followed by Q&A with the informative and experienced Dr. Andrew Mullins delivering his talk “From Temperament to Character”.
Each child is born with a particular temperament: his or her personality type. Character is the sum total of one’s good habits, such as resilience, responsibility, sound judgement, and self-control. Guiding children to grow in character helps them to become happy adults, no matter their natural tendencies.
From his thirty years of working closely with parents, and tapping into the science and psychology of character development, Dr. Mullins delivers very practical advice for parents and educators.
You will take home ways to build an even stronger and more beautiful character in each child you teach.
