As pervasive violence shatters our nation, the call for values echoes through headlines and school hallways as educators, parents and children become increasingly concerned and affected.
The Living Values series offers a variety of experiential activities for teachers and parents to help them teach children and young adults to develop twelve critical social values: cooperation, freedom, happiness, honesty, humility, love, peace, respect, responsibility, simplicity, tolerance and unity. In each book, these twelve values are explored using age-appropriate lessons that incorporate group discussions, reading, quiet reflection time, songs, artwork and action-oriented activities.
These lessons are already in use in more than 1,000 locations in sixty-two countries. Pilot results indicate that students are enthusiastic and teachers report a decrease in aggressive behavior and more motivated students. The Living Values Educational Program was born when twenty educators from around the world gathered at UNICEF Headquarters in New York in 1996 to discuss the needs of children and how to better prepare students for lifelong success. These global educators identified the curriculum and the program was ready for piloting in February of 1997.

Happiness Reflection Points
Occasionally include a Relaxation/Focusing exercise during values time. Songs create a special atmosphere where people can experience a value. The values planning team may wish to choose one subject area daily to play a song. You may want the students to bring in songs that relate to the theme of happiness. Some students enjoy learning traditional songs.Core Happiness Lesson 3 Talking to Myself
Write the Reflection Point on the board: When there is love and peace inside, happiness automatically grows.
Build Concept: Talking to Myself is an acknowledgment of the process that occurs within every individual. We all talk to ourselves with a silent voice. This is called self-talk or inner dialogue. In this unit on Happiness, this is an important aspect to think about, as self-talk can be positive or negative, encouraging or discouraging.
Say: "Notice your tone of voice when you speak to yourself. What do you say to yourself when you're afraid that you'll fail at something? What is the emotional effect when you call yourself 'Stupid'? It's wonderful when people feel bad when they make a mistake, because it simply means they want to do it right. But we have a lot more energy to do the right thing when we say to ourselves: 'Okay, I made a mistake. I'm human. I can learn from mistakes. What can I do next time so I do not repeat the mistake'?" Discuss.
Then draw three columns on the board, putting the following headers at the top of the columns: Situation, Discouraging and Encouraging/Empowering. Ask them to make three similar columns on a piece of paper. Fill out the columns with the content from the questions below.Situation- Discouraging-Encouraging/Empowering
Instruct the class to divide in half or in small groups. Ask the students to continue to generate situations that are challenging, and fill in the remaining columns with discouraging and encouraging or empowering thoughts.
