As your kids learn about HONESTY in school, we hope you’ll help emphasize this value AT HOME.
Below are 4 fun ways to SAY, KNOW, SEE, and BE with HONESTY!
SAY IT: Honesty is choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do.
KNOW IT: Ask a kid: • Have you ever heard the saying “honesty is the best policy”? Can you think of a person you know that is consistently honest? • Think of a time when it was difficult to be honest because you were afraid of the consequence. • What happens at school and home when you are not honest with adults? What happens in these settings when you are honest? Ask a grown up: • Share an example of a time when you were honest even when it was difficult to do so. • What was your consequence when you were growing up for not being truthful with your parents?
SEE IT: The Disney classic Pinocchio is a perfect example of how being dishonest only increases the problem. Viewers are able to see Pinocchio’s nose grow with every fib and white lie he tells. While this is simply a figurative way of teaching honesty, we can see how this relates to real life. Think of real life consequences of being dishonest and discuss them with your family.
BE IT: As a family, discuss ways to be honest with others. Ideas for discussion might be accepting responsibility for your actions rather than lying about the incident, avoiding situations in which you will have to lie for others, and thinking about things you do that make you feel bad or guilty.
