If there is anything children learn in school, maintaining habits is one of them. From waking up every morning with a goal, to highlighting important phrases they need to remember, to mentally and practically preparing themselves for an important test, setting and maintaining healthy habits can impact someone’s life professionally, socially, personally and spiritually. And traditions are just habits assigned to events. So I think the school is the best place to start inspiring the children to create traditions on different events.
