What is P2 for Families?

P2 for Families is an easy and effective way for families to discuss the importance of character strengths and positive relationships. It is differentiated for grades Pre-K-K, 1- 2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Each character strength follows a 1-1-3 model: 1 quote, 1 video, and 3 questions to drive conversations around character at home.

Please choose your child’s grade level below to be directed to all of the character strengths.

To learn more about The Positivity Project, please see the P2 Family Information Letter.

What is positive psychology?

Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living — and maintains that what is good in life is as genuine as what is bad. Positive psychology’s 24 character strengths are grounded in extensive research and analysis that resulted in the landmark 800-page book Character Strengths and Virtues.

Character Strengths and Virtues presents evidence that all 24 strengths exist in every person — and in all cultures of the world. Character strengths define who, not what, a person is. Ranging from bravery and perseverance to integrity and gratitude, these character strengths are the foundation of The Positivity Project’s model.
