The ‘right’ thing

Award-winning author Michele Borba, Ed.D., will give a free talk on “How to Raise Kids Who Do the Right Thing,” Wednesday, April 1, 7 p.m., at Greens Farms Academy, 35 Beachside Avenue, Westport.
“In an era when we’re concerned with rank, scores and GPA, we often overlook character,” said Dr. Borba, author of the best-selling Building Moral Intelligence. “Kids who do better in life are those who possess traits such as empathy and self-control. These are the character traits that help kids become more resilient and able to succeed in the real world.”
