Character education is not something lofty or difficult. Character education is already everywhere. Already exists in the family, social environment, schools, entertainment and more. But this time we will learn something important about education core character of football.
Yeah, why football because of the condition or examples would be very easy in the analogy (equated) with the condition and how to educate the characters in the school and home. Basically the character education is to provide the rules of life and social environment accompanied with consequences applicable therein. Then the relationship with football? Easily, the applicable rules of soccer are very raw and clear. There are rules and consequences. If the violation was a yellow card (warning), red cards (out of the game), free kick, penalty, corner kick, even financial penalties for players and teams. Even more “sadistic” again if the team had to go down the caste to a lower league.
As a lover of football, I am very pleased and repeatedly used this example to teachers and parents who want to know about how to educate a child character using this example. A child needs to develop a real understanding of how the world works, learn the “rules of the game” all aspects that exist in this world and “live” in this world. Well, the problem child at birth he did not have a “social concept” in his head, so children need to know how the rules – the rules that exist in this world. This Character Education, easy right?
In order not to hit yellow card, do not be violated. If you violate again yes red card. So many of the football players when the team upset opponents always try to maintain the attitude of trying to respect the referee and keep it off steam issued. Yes this is the human world, sometimes there is not yet an appropriate and necessary rules to make everything orderly.
In the game of football core players in a match is the referee. Banyangkan if the play is not there then it is most likely not referee a football match again we see. But the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on the football field, the alias-free field fight football. Same in the world of education in the schools there perlau figure whose role as referee in a football game to be “keepers” rule at school. And often it is the weakness, the referee at the school was not functioning properly. Just as at home, parents are less able to referee properly. So that education can be run with less character maximum.
We need to know all, character education is not merely impart knowledge but merely to establish rules and consequences within the school and at home. In school rules such as: children do not bring textbooks consequently obtain additional duty. It must be clear and consistent, and communicated to all parties including parents.
Next, it should be a responsible person in the field of character education is a person who has an interest, in the world of “humanity” is not necessarily a psychologist. Why because it is related to the set rules and consequences for students. Of course, these rules should be organized according to rank and age and scale of violations. For example: child punishment intentionally steal or destroy school property would have been different with a child who forgot to bring stationery, or do not take notes.
Well, the important thing for all of us that character education is not something complicated. It’s very easy and there are many examples around us, we want to stay or not. Need an attempt to implement this, we need to know and learn about the ins and outs of the human and how to overcome them. Because humans are born with no manual book of his, such as Black Berry that we buy and have included manual book her and no clue how to use it.
