Chairwoman Zahng Gil-jah of the International WeLoveU Foundation concluded a four-week Happy School Parent Academy program by presenting on the topic of character. “If you want to make your child study hard, you must also instruct them in ‘humanity education.’ A mother is a teacher who delivers humanity education.”
The Chairwoman started her special lecture on character by emphasizing the role of a mother. Today, our society is overwhelmed by crimes and violence. So character education is needed now more than ever. The Chairwoman pointed out that parents can set the example for their children on the right way to live through their speech, behavior and direct instruction.
Chairwoman Zahng emphasized that parents should teach children to not only receive love, but also give love. When parents participate in volunteer activities with their children, they reinforce open communication and positive social interactions that can be continued in their children’s lives.
She asked parents to revive the tradition of yielding to one another, being considerate of others, and helping neighbors. The Chairwoman also requested families to have a broad mind, regard people all around the world as neighbors, and help people who are in difficulties, like climate refugees.
