Positive Education

What is Positive Education?

According to Dr. Martin Seligman, an American psychologist and one of the pioneers in positive psychology, traditional psychology mainly focuses on treating mental illness, alleviating negative emotions and correcting deviant behavior. However rather than fixing our mistakes and getting rid of despairs, people should strive to use their strength to live a full and meaningful life.

The purpose of positive character education is to explore the strength of individual child, help to develop and enhance it, thus lay the foundation for a flourishing life. Seligman believes there are three dimensions that can be cultivated:

  • A pleasant life

    To live a life which is happy, healthy, confident, contented and has a good interpersonal relationship with others.

  • An engaged life

    To aim high, make it a drive to utilize your unique strength to engage yourself to achieve a highly satisfying and better life for physical and psychological needs.

  • A meaningful life

    To pursue a meaningful life by being selfless, devoting your energy in serving others, contributing to the society.

Learn to smile,
Life will be better.

A positive life does not mean a life with only positive elements. On the contrary, life is full of successes, failures, joys and grieves. To be able to handle all the ups (+) and downs (-), be POSITIVE, learn to face them with a smile, there is always a silver lining somewhere.

Positive Character Education

What is Character?

‘Character’ in Chinese is「品格」,「品」means people together while「格」is the individual space separating among people. In other words, Character means how one interacts with others with own personal limits. Good character is therefore a very crucial element in a harmonious and prosperous society.

Ten Positive Character Fruittos

Every child has different core character skills which are inborn and hidden inside children's little brains. What the parents and teachers should do is to help them discover their own character potentials and then fully utilize them. This is fundamental to living a flourishing life in the future.

Discovering and developing children's strengths rather than remedying weaknesses is the most effective strategy in children’s growth. Core character skills are like muscles, the more they are trained, the stronger they will become. Core character skills cannot be programmed in, they have to be discovered, trained and developed.

Growth Mindset

Fixed Mindset VS Growth Mindset

Prof. Carol Dweck, a research psychologist at Stanford University,
introduced a new concept of education, suggesting that there are two kinds of mindsets.

Fixed Mindset

Intelligence, manipulative and social abilities are fixed traits that cannot be changed.

Growth Mindset

Anything can be learned, there is always room for improvement, and success is not granted. Ability and wisdom can be nurtured. With a proper growth mindset, setbacks are only challenges, and you can succeed if you do your best.
