Practical Principle: Honesty

Young person “tells the truth even when it is not easy.”

Guiding Growths

  • Hold a family meeting and discuss honesty. Talk about the value of trustworthiness and why it’s important for everyone to tell the truth no matter what.
  • Turn a minor mistake into an opportunity to talk about honesty. If someone in your family doesn’t do a chore on time or stays up a little to late, take that experience and hold your own episode of “The Family Court” and make learning about honesty fun.
