Facing Fears - Courage

10/14/2021
In this episode, we speak about how to help children stay strong when they are afraid. In many situations, children look upon us as their ‘heroes’, when they are afraid. Quite often, fear comes from not having traveled the path before, or the ‘unknown’. Sometimes it comes from having failed before, and having the courage to persevere and go at it again. We speak about different strategies and examples of how we can teach children to have courage and to listen to their hearts. How can children face their fears and learn to try new things, and as importantly, ask for help when they need it. GoVirtues: Instagram | Facebook | Website

Let's Talk with Mojgan Tosif

9/10/2020
In this episode, we continue our reflection on Tact as we speak with Mojgan Tosif about how we communicate with our children. As parents, we need to remember what our role is - as a guide and counselor, not an authoritarian or a dictator. By recognising that our children are full of virtues in potential, we learn to nurture these by 'naming' the virtues rather than shaming the child.
