What is the author's religious background? Heather McMillan was raised as a Christian in a pastor's family. The character her parents taught her had a tremendously positive impact on her life and on her own parenting and teaching career. Heather wanted to see those same universal skills made available to any parent or teacher, because she believes the benefits of virtue training belong to EVERY child. Over the past 10 years she has proven her concept as parents, teachers, coaches, administrators and counselors, in secular and faith-based homes and schools, in 35 countries worldwide, have raved about the success of their kids being trained using We Choose Virtues.
Is We Choose Virtues a curriculum? It is not a unit study. It is a character skills system. We focus on clarifying expectations through a simple language and fun demonstrations. We see our system a bit like a garden tool, Anyone can learn to use it, and enjoy the benefits for a lifetime.

This tool was designed for early-childhood through elementary.
"It is a bright poster that will catch the children's eyes at random times. It serves as visual reminder even when we aren't talking about it."
"It is great for various ages. From your youngest child that is just learning gentleness to your tween that needs an obedience reminder, this chart will serve your family through all the ages and stages."
"The chart isn't overly aggressive or underly syrupy. It is straightforward and the 12 virtues are valuable for everyone. As Christians, we include Bible verses as we talk about the chart but this would be just as valid of a tool for any family."
"It is easy to reference in any conflict discussion. Children arguing? Talk about self-control and kindness. Little Billy not listening to you? Point out "I am obedient". Sally's Christmas list incredibly long? Discuss being content." ~Edie
