This project disseminates knowledge and activity plans to teachers and parents of kindergarten children, to help them meet the guidelines for physical activity, screen time, and sleep. We are interacting directly with kindergartens so that the dissemination is situated in the context of the local kindergartens. This project is funded by the Food and Health Bureau of Hong Kong (Health and Medical Research Fund 17180131)

Character strengths measurement tool for Hong Kong children

JC4A9471-1.jpg

Children’s character development has received increasing attention because many pieces of research show the importance of character strengths in children’s well-being and academic performance. Measurement of character strengths in early childhood is an area that was addressed only recently. This study was designed to cross-cultural adapt and validate a specific parent/teacher-report assessment tool to manifest the characters of children, ages 3-6 years.
