Word Of The Month – Trustworthy

Dear Parents & Guardians,

In July we will be working on the character lesson: TRUSTWORTHY.

People that are trustworthy have a reputation for being honest, responsible, and reliable. When a child is considered trustworthy, there are many benefits.

People tend to treat trustworthy children better and provide them with more opportunities from learning to leading which consistently increases the child’s self-esteem. With that said, it is safe to say that helping children become trustworthy is the foundation for good character development.

You can help by reinforcing trustworthiness at home.

Below are some tips on how to compliment the lessons we teach about trustworthiness this month:

  • Make promises only of rewards that you plan to keep.

  • Make promises only of punishments that you plan to keep.

  • Be consistent in everything you say.

  • Tell the truth to your children.

  • Tell the truth in front of your children.

Be sure to point out when you see your children showing trustworthiness behaviours at home. Acknowledging them when they demonstrate this behaviour and explaining the benefits of it is the best way to build this skill.

The homework for our junior students this month will be to always be honest and keep your promises to keep your room tidy.

Thank you for allowing us to be a positive influence on your children and we look forward to watching our youthful students demonstrate the skill of being trustworthy in class.
