We have, for years, been witnessing growing interest in the personal
and moral education of children and teenagers2; this means that it has
become more and more common to hear about certain approaches in
education that specify how to carry this out. Most important among
these approaches is what is called Character Education (Ce).
The boom in education of programs on this aspect can, to a certain
extent, be explained because society considers that education is one of
the principal ways to avoid harmful conducts dangereus to individuals
and in society. It is also believed that education will promote the conditions
and behaviors that encourage health, well-being, success, integration
and social participation.
