You know you just hate being told how to act and what to do? Well, it's pretty universal among kids AND adults so we created a way for the participants in our programs to create their own rules and we call that process the Code of Honor Activity.
The cool part about the Code of Honor activity is that it makes it relatively easy for you, the instructor (or parent:) to revisit the code any time the child or teen (or heaven forbid an adult in your program) acts out or goes 'against the code' as it were. Simply ask the participants to come with you and ask him/her to read the behavior that you want them to acknowledge and have a chat about making a new agreement.
Living is the greatest learning and learning through experience makes learning lighter and more meaningful.
