- COMPETENCE - ability to handle stressful situations effectively and having the skills to face challenges.
- CONFIDENCE - belief in one’s own abilities and is rooted in competence. Children gain confidence by being able to demonstrate their competence in real situations.
- CONNECTION - children with close ties to friends, family, and community groups are likely to have a stronger sense of security and sense of belonging. These children are more likely to have strong values and are less likely to seek out alternative destructive behaviors.
- CHARACTER - children with “character” enjoy a strong sense of self-worth and confidence. They are in touch with their values and are comfortable sticking to them. They can demonstrate a caring attitude towards others. They have a strong sense of right and wrong and are prepared to make wise choices and contribute to the world.
- CONTRIBUTION - if children can experience personally contributing to the world, they can learn the powerful lesson that the world is a better place because they are in it.
- COPING - children who have a wide range of coping skills (social skills, stress reduction skills) are able to cope more effectively and are better prepared to overcome life’s challenges.
- CONTROL - when children realize that they have control over their decisions and actions, they are more likely to know how to make choices in a way that they may bounce back from life’s challenging moments.
