Honesty

Your child can show honesty by:

  • sharing his or her feelings and being truthful
  • telling the truth, even though he or she may know that there will be consequences
  • being reliable and responsible in completing a job

Encouraging honesty in your child:

  • Give your child opportunities to tell the truth.
  • Make sure that you explain to your child that you always want the truth, even though he or she may be afraid that you might be angry.
  • Encourage and praise your child when he or she is honest.
  • Model honesty by returning lost items.

Be honest and tell the truth
