What is a Life Lesson?
Honesty – always tell the truth
Be proactive (life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it)
Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
Getting your priorities straight (family, school, etc.)
Don’t complain; focus your energy on the positive things.
Of course, there are more but this gives you the idea.
The key to make this work is to put your players in a situation where they can help someone and then see the look on the other persons face. If you get a genuine smile going both directions, it was successful. But in order for it to be genuine, your players need to believe and buy into the cause.
For some players, this small experience can stimulate them to continue helping others on their own. For other players, this won’t sink in until they are adults and mature enough to understand the joy of giving.
Either way, almost all players will remember the event because it’s such a unique and positive thing.
