Children learn values from parents when they are good role models, advocate for positive character, provide fair and consistent enforcement of family expectations and are creative when they teach lessons. Parents and families understand the value of a teachable moment. With TeRRiFiCC Teachable Moments: Families at your fingertips, you can respond to character and behavior issues at a moment’s notice. Learning by doing is the framework for each Terrific Teachable Moments activity. This workshop and accompanying resource provides parents with a framework about how to develop positive character traits in their child.
