Dear Parent,

    Your child is involved in learning-activities designed to develop good character and empower young people to make good choices for themselves. 

    The current lesson is about the importance of cooperating with friends and classmates.

    Here are some things you can do to support the idea that cooperation is an important life skill and that the rewards outweigh the sacrifices.

      Schedule household chores at a time when all members of the family can work together to finish them.

     Initiate a fun project that involves all family members (a garden, jigsaw puzzle, homemade pizza, etc.).

      "Catch" your child cooperating (or attempting to cooperate) and offer your encouragement by verbally showing your appreciation; material rewards are not necessary.
