Welcome to My Growing Values

Nurturing positive life values in children

We all want our children to grow up with the positive life values and good character. Research tell us that building and moulding a child’s character and teaching them how to live a value-filled life is best begun at a young age when they readily imitate those around them and easily absorb what they see and hear.

Research also tells us that reading to children daily will help them develop literacy and language skills that will set them up for success in life. Reading is also a great way to spend time with your child and build a strong relationship with each other.

Children learn values that make up good character by observing those around them. We can reinforce these positive values by engaging the child in an activity that captures their interest like reading.

The My Growing Values “I am” book series is a simple way to combine reading and the introduction of positive life values to your children. With simple statements and beautifully coloured pictures you child will enjoy having these books read to them for many years to come.

For babies the coloured pictures are engaging and as your child gets older the simple statements describe the behaviours that characterise the value and provide a starting point for discussion.
