Positive Character Games Pack

Too often kids (and many adults too) react to a problem situation without taking the time to think in a clear and rational way. In the heat of a problem, conflict, or disappointment, it is hard to get kids to think things through clearly. They tend to blame others, blame themselves, be unnecessarily pessimistic, or insist on self-centred solutions. These games help children learn to respect differences and similarities and as a result be discouraged from bullying and excluding others from social networks. Although some children are naturally better at recognising feelings than others, all children can improve their skills in these areas.

 

The Positive Character Games Pack includes:

 

Building Character – builds character in children by teaching them five important aspects of good character: respect, caring, fairness, honesty, and responsibility. The included deck of cards presents short scenarios, and players must decide if the actions indicated represent good or bad character. Kids take what they learn playing this game and apply it to real-life, everyday situations.

Character Strength – based on the concepts of the new field of positive psychology; it is designed to build strong character in kids. The character strengths emphasised in this game are kindness, self control, forgiveness, modesty, leadership, and social intelligence. Players practice describing how they would respond to various scenarios in ways that would demonstrate the six character strengths emphasised in the game.

Friendship Explorers – A jigsaw puzzle to help children understand differences and similarities in others. This puzzle provides an enjoyable way for children to think about a multitude of differences in their peers, including cultural and social differences. Players earn pieces to the jigsaw map of the world as they answer questions about diversity.

Feelings Detective – helps all children understand their own feelings as well as the feelings of others. It is especially helpful for children who tend to misread social cues, including those who have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome or are at any other position on the Autism Spectrum. Specific examples help players to link specific situations and thoughts with specific feelings. Feelings are the most basic building blocks of social skills. Without the ability to recognise feelings in themselves and others, children are not able to master social interactions.

Positive Thoughts – based on work by Albert Ellis on Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), which shows that emotional problems can be traced to irrational thinking processes. Problems can be alleviated or solved by beginning to use rational thinking processes. In the game, his theory is applied to everyday problems, not serious emotional problems. The game uses the word “positive” instead of “rational,” and “negative” instead of “irrational.”
