The point made for the students and parents was that we need to practice the virtues to get better at it. For a week, I was cognizant that I was failing. Then, one by one, I started working on them. In working with the teens, I identified which one needed the most effort and kept that in the front of my mind. It remains incredibly difficult for me, but I think I am improving. There was also a bonus. When I acted with virtue in mind, I often made decisions that led to me being happier. Imagine that. Good living and happiness go hand in hand.
