Just like educators help children improve areas of weakness, it’s important to also help children explore and enhance their strengths.
Character Strengths represent positive qualities within a child that help to bring out the best in them. When they are using their strengths, they feel good – energized, excited, and motivated. These attributes help children to learn and improve their mental health & wellbeing. Kids feel successful and happy when they are using their strengths.
According to VIA Institute of Character, humans possess 24 Character Strengths in different degrees. We all have a different mixture or combination of strengths; some representing our top strengths (often called Signature Strengths).
