Healthy Teen Relationships



IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER VOLUME 1: TRUSTWORTHINESS

Trust is the basis of all good relationships and a cornerstone of good character. This program shows what it means to be a person others can trust. We learn that trustworthy people keep their promises, are honest, reliable, principled, and never inappropriately betray a confidence. And to help understand how trusting relationships are developed, we look at a documentary about a high school peer counseling program, where trusting and being trusted are the keys to a healthy school community.

IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER VOLUME 2: RESPECT

This program shows how treating people with respect helps us get along with each other, avoid and resolve conflicts, and create a positive social climate. We see that respectful behavior means treating others with civility and courtesy, accepting personal differences, listening to what others have to say, and refraining from ridiculing, embarrassing or hurting others. And to demonstrate that each of us has a role in creating a respectful climate, we see an inspiring documentary about a biracial teenager's initiative to promote interracial respect.

IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER VOLUME 4: FAIRNESS

Nothing makes people bristle like injustice, but often it's difficult to know what's fair and what isn't, or what to do when faced with injustice. This program helps young people understand how to live by the golden rule, what it takes to be a fair and just person, and how much our personal actions do matter. As a stunning example of individual effectiveness, we see the inspiring story of a teenage boy whose action in response to injustice launched a worldwide campaign to bring an end to exploitative child labor.

IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER VOLUME 5: CARING

Caring is not just a way of feeling, it's a way of behaving. This program teaches that what makes us caring people is doing caring things. We learn that caring people respond selflessly to the needs of others and treat others with kindness, concern, and generosity. And we see the stirring account of a teenage girl whose exemplary acts of caring have enriched the lives of disadvantaged children in her community.

IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER VOLUME 7: HONESTY

This video begins with the surprising account of two boys who triggered a fire storm of criticism by committing a simple act of honesty. But as we see from their experience and the teen discussions that follow, choosing to be honest or dishonest does something to our character. Lying makes us liars. Cheating makes us cheaters. But being honest frees us to be real. Not only do honest people have stronger, better relationships with others, but their honesty makes them better people and it makes our world a better place.
