Honesty is such an important trait. So how do we teach it to our kids? Let's talk about teaching kids the importance of honesty. A lot of this can be applied in the school
Being honest living honestly and authentically. This does not mean you need to be Jesus or Buddha. It means you practice what you preach. Why? First it keeps you humble. You walk the talk and that allows you to have compassion and patience with others struggling with similar challenges. Second it changes the world. Your commitment changes you and therefore it changes every person you come into contact with and it changes all of your interactions. That spreads. Bad behavior spreads but so…
Some times things are said that hurt. They may not have made any difference to you, but they do to the person you spoke them to. This can also work the other way. Encouraging words can stick with someone as well. Choose your words wisely
Erin S. North Carolina "My sister is a Gold Ribbon Hero because she tells the truth about what it means to be a mother to a child with neuroblastoma. Although we lost our dear Isabella this summer, my courageous sister continues to speak with raw unvarnished honesty about the truth of the situation. She speaks and writes with a powerful voice about the importance of funding pediatric cancer and how this is unacceptable in today's society. She is the kind of mother and woman I aspire to be."
