Other People Matter Mindset - My Words & Actions Matter
This week our students will learn about Self Control. Self-control is the act of managing behavior in a way that positively influences goal attainment and living up to standards. Possessing this strength protects people from destabilizing emotional extremes. Those with self-control are able to limit impulsive behavior. They have the ability to experience and navigate difficulty while remaining poised.
The parent virtue for Self-control is Temperance. Strengths of temperance protect us from excess. Strength comprised in this virtue are forgiveness, humility/modesty, prudence, and self-control.
