Preteens and teens need help in acquiring the social skills to appropriately handle challenging situations. Without those skills, a minor disagreement can often escalate into a physical confrontation. And that's where Character-Building Activities: Teaching Responsibility, Interaction, and Group Dynamics comes in.

This book provides nearly 100 activities that will help children and young adults

-gain a better sense of what they value based on their character traits,

-become more effective communicators, and

-discover how to communicate their values and strengthen their convictions.

Character-Building Activities: Teaching Responsibility, Interaction, and Group Dynamics applies directly to preteens and teenagers, but it is easily adapted to younger children. This resource can be used in a variety of settings both in and out of school, including youth groups and curricular areas such as language arts and social studies. The activities are short, clearly described, easy to set up, and ready to use. Teachers or group leaders can pop an activity into an existing lesson plan or use a few in creating a new lesson plan.

Regardless of age and setting, the participants in these activities will learn to deal with a variety of issues, including self-esteem, peer pressure, bullies, anger, and stress. They will also acquire self-reflection skills and have opportunities to share their values and listen to other kids as they share theirs.

The self-responsibility, social interaction, and group dynamics involved in this book's activities will help kids grow and mature.
