The Character Counts Coalition uses the color red to symbolize the pillar of Caring.
During the months of November and December, students will be focusing on the pillar of Caring. There are two main ideas that apply to the pillar of caring.
Most trouble between people begins when someone puts down another and hurt feelings lead to bad behavior. Caring people act different; they let the little acts of kindness lift people up instead of putting them down. To resolve conflicts children need to learn that people should seek reconciliation and try to understand each other’s perspective, there are always 2 sides to the story. It is also important to learn the ability to forgive when trying to resolve conflicts. Forgiveness is an act of caring in and of itself.
