"For herein may be seen noble chivalry,
courtesy, humanity, friendliness, hardiness,
love, friendship... Do after the good and
leave the evil, and it shall bring you to
good fame and renown."
Sir Thomas Malory(1470)
During their formative years, children are
fascinated by the stories of heroes. In these
legends and fairy tales, they find not only role
models, but also an opportunity to explore for
themselves the endless possibilities inherent
in their imagination and creativity.
Even today, with the Internet and other
incredible forms of mass communication and
entertainment, the world of knights, with their
tales of courtesy and chivalry still exert a
powerful influence on the minds and
imaginations of children of all ages.
Chivalry for Children seeks to tap into
that fascination, and with stories and
activities, to use it as a vehicle to inspire,
encourage, and guide children and young
adults to seek within themselves the qualities
of "chivalry" which they possess but which
may lie dormant within them, and to exhibit
those virtues in their interactions with others.
