Madison, WI 2014 Family Virtues

Something or Other Publishing is again sponsoring the Essential Family Virtues Program in Madison, WI.  Twelve Madison, WI area families are invited to participate in a 10-session program of virtues-based discovery sessions. The program is designed to provide both a language and a practice for your family to enhance the expression and development of the natural virtues inherent in every child.  The program features:

  • Virtues class for children 4-8 years of ageFamily Virtues
  • Parent Discussion Group
  • Family Virtues Guide book
  • Toddler Play-date for younger family members
  • “Let Your Virtues Shine” field trip

Approximately once a month, the twelve families will meet to explore a virtue.  A field trip is planned for the tenth and final session, in which the children will practice the virtues they have cultivated over the course of the program as a service project.

We’ll also be co-sponsoring a two day Virtues facilitator’s workshop scheduled for November 22-23.  Please email Virtues@SOOPLLC.com for more information or to register for either program.
