CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF MARYLAND
CHILDREN OF THE WORLD
Associated with Campus Crusade for Christ. There is nothing more influential or more detrimental in a child's life than the power of a quiet example. Moral and character education (the training of spirit and mind toward good) involves many things. "It involves rules and precepts - the do's and don't's of life with others - as well as explicit instruction, exhortation, and training. Moral character education must provide training in good habits. Aristotle wrote that good habits formed at youth make all the difference. And moral and character education must affirm the central importance of example." William Bennett, "Virtue Man," Christianity Today, Sept. 13, 1993, p. 31. For children to take morality and character development seriously, they need a significant adult in their life who takes morality and character seriously. They need to see adults live out character traits and experience their choosing morality seriously. Theordore Roosevelt once said: "To educate a child in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society." Who will teach the children Character?
