New York, New York, USA – WEBWIRE

Hollywood’s “Nice Guy,” Tom Hanks, accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday. The actor, whose reputation for being kind to fellow colleagues, fans and his fellow man, credits his success to his family’s support and a strong work ethic.

Hanks, who portrayed television icon and fellow “nice guy” Fred Rogers in his latest movie, proves that respect, integrity and kindness continue to be qualities people admire, respect, and aspire to.

“In a world where some of the worst behavior is often glorified in the media, parents and teachers frequently struggle to find exemplary models of good character to hold up to children. It’s heartwarming to see people like Hanks and Rogers, who exemplify kindness, respect, and decency coming into the forefront and being recognized, not only for their body of work but for their character as well,” says Peggy D. Sideratos, author of The Light Giver and Other Stories to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children,” and The Light Giver Stories Workbook.”

Sideratos, a former teacher whose books of children’s stories and lessons stress the tenets of good character, says: “We need more positive role models to inspire kids today.”

Hanks, in his speech also impressed upon the audience the importance of being at work on time and showing up prepared with ideas in hand to bring forth your best.

“I think that’s an extremely important lesson to share with today’s youth,” says Sideratos, who addresses the topic of “Being a Person of Excellence,” in both her book and workbook and shared about the same issue in her blog, “Your Best Effort is the Greatest Gift You Give Yourself.
