  • Discussion Guide on Gratitude

    Teach Gratitude, Honesty, Integrity and Appreciation to Children

    Teach Gratitude


    Overview of this resource:

    Some concepts are difficult to covey to children. Gratitude, appreciation, honesty and integrity fall into that category. Kids Character Building has developed a new product called "Let's Talk About Gratitude" that teachers and parents can use to instill these endearing qualities in the children under their care.

    What Life Lessons Will the Children Learn?

    This educational kid's magazine tells the story of a man who lost something valuable and the hero who had the integrity to returned it. Every aspect is explored from the viewpoint of each man.

    Gratitude

    This material is appropriate for any home school and public school elementary school child.

    The take-away lesson is that doing the right thing - and showing appreciation - leads to good feelings and a better world for everyone. Displaying integrity, choosing the honest option and demonstrating gratitude toward others are just a few of the life enhancing actions that are explored and encouraged in this enjoyable children's magazine.

    A special point about finding something to be grateful for - even when things are not working out as planned - offers children an advanced concept of finding inner peace.

    Children will also be led in a discussion of what consequences can be expected if honest actions are not carried out. The preferred consequences of honest actions over dishonest ones are discussed.

  • Why Do People Oppose Immigration?

    Here are the top five reasons why people oppose immigration:

    Every year, millions of people leave their countries to find a new home. Many immigrants register to live legally in their new country. Many others immigrate illegally. With so much immigration, there is sure to be some debate.

    JOBS

    Many people fear that they will lose their jobs to immigrants. They feel there aren’t enough jobs for everyone in their country plus large numbers of immigrants. In addition, immigrants from poor countries will often work for much lower pay than workers in their new country.

     

    Cost of Immigration

    COST

    Some people think that immigrants won’t contribute to the good of their new country by working. Workers pay taxes, which helps the country. Those who don’t work receive benefits, such as free health care or welfare payments. Some people oppose immigration because they think it costs the country too much.

     

    Immigrants bringing Culture

    CULTURE

    People have pride in their country, their culture, and their language. Those who oppose immigration might feel that it will change their country too much. They feel that immigrants won’t make an effort to fit in with the culture by learning the language, dressing a certain way, or making other cultural changes.

     

    Predjudice of immigrants

    PREDJUDICE

    Some people have developed prejudices against a certain group of people or against all immigrants. They might dislike others because of their appearance, language, religion, or culture. Prejudice can also come from the belief that immigrants might be more likely to commit crimes, or that they dislike the citizens of their new country.

     

    Politics of Immigration

    POLITICS

    In some cases, large numbers of legal immigrants vote the same way in elections. Their political views might be different from native citizens of that country. If enough immigrants vote “against the grain,” they can shift the politics of their new state or country.
