Responsibility is often regarded as a burden, but in this dvd we discover that it is actually a great source of personal power. It is the key to taking charge of our lives. As a case in point, we see the remarkable example of a young woman who grew up in poverty but transformed her life by taking complete responsibility for shaping her own future. We learn that responsible people do what needs to be done, fulfill their obligations, are accountable for their actions, use good judgment, and don’t let people down.
In Search of Character™ spotlights ten core virtues that help teens develop into caring, respectful, responsible people who make choices based on what's right, rather than what's easy.
In this 10 part video series, viewers take a fun, behind-the-scenes peek at the Dr. Mike Radio Show, where callers explore different aspects of character with "Dr. Mike" (Michael Thomson, Ph.D.) and his co-host. Listen in on the lively, thoughtful, and revealing discussions of high school students from around the country. Watch inspiring documentary profiles of young people who exemplify the power of good character in the real world.
In Search of Character™ focuses on the ten virtues most commonly named by parents, educators, and community groups concerned with character education. While each of these words evokes its own meaning, what counts most, like colors on a canvas, is the way they interact to paint a complete picture. In Search of Character™ is not about teaching individual virtues, it's about helping young people construct a vision of themselves as good people and then live up to that vision. It's about showing them that, in a world where poor character is so commonplace, they can choose to be better than that.
