We welcome you to learn more about “Getting to Know You,” the third/fourth/fifth grade component of the Kids Style series of instructional stories and aligned resources designed to help children work together by understanding themselves and others.
Our Vision for Kids Style is to provide a resource for children, as well as their parents and teachers, that provides a framework of knowledge, understanding, and appreciation for the value of worth-based relationships with others in order for them to attain their ”greater good.”
Kids Style has been designed to work with existing programs of character education to meet the need of children to know “why” they, and the others around them, behave in the ways they do—whether in normal interactions or relationships in conflict. Kids Style will not only educate youngsters about the underlying intent of the actions of others, but will provide skills and strategies that will serve them for a life time.
The development of an identity and the ability to recognize characteristics in others is what sets Kids Style apart from other character education programs.

Based on 40 years of research and success in the adult world, Kids Style is a new character development approach fostering your child’s awareness of his/her own style as well as the style of others. With awareness of the differences and similarities of style, children not only come to respect differences, but also become adept at utilizing Kids Style tools to reduce tension in self and others to avoid conflict.
Research has shown that it is beneficial for a child to have established a solid self-concept by adolescence. The development of an identity and the ability to recognize characteristics in others is what sets Kids Style apart from other character education programs.
