This booklet provides information about the values and skills that make up character and good citizenship and what parents can do to help their children develop strong character. It suggests activities that parents and school-aged children can do to put those values to work in their daily lives and tips for working with teachers and schools to ensure that families and schools act together to promote the basic values that parents want their children to learn and use. The booklet also provides a list of books and other resources with character-related themes that parents can read and discuss with children to encourage character and citizenship development.
