Character Word Honesty


This month our Character Word is Honesty. We will be discussing what it means to be honest.

What is Honesty?

Honesty is more than not telling a lie, it is speaking the truth, acting truthfully and being honest with ourselves.

What does it mean to speak the truth? It mean you do not lie or be dishonest about something that has happened.

What does it mean to act Truthfully? It means not hiding the truth (deceiving), not breaking rules to get ahead (cheating), and not stealing from friends and anything else that you would hide.

What does it mean to be honest with ourselves?  It means you know why you are acting in a certain way or whether what you tell yourself is true. An example of this would be you broke a chair and trying to convince yourself you did not.

Why do children sometimes decide its better to lie?
