GOAL SLOGAN: I SEEK AND DEFEND THE TRUTH
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.
The questions below are designed to help you think about how you can help from home with the skills development programme your child is taking part in.
- Do you always behave in the same way (outside of private and family life) during a visit, at a public event or at school? Are you coherent individuals in this respect?
- Do you defend the honour of others or do you let yourself be led on by reckless judgements? Do you often criticise others?
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The suggestions below show when personal parental involvement is necessary. The aim of the subjects proposed is to demonstrate where you might be able to support your child and help him to work on developing this month’s skill.
- Strengthen an attitude of honesty in your children by means of your own example of truthfulness and willpower when explaining those things that happen to us, both the good and the bad.
- Make sure that your children understand that hiding a mistake is often worse than the mistake itself, as it leads to a loss of mutual confidence.
- Pay attention to comments expressed at home, in order to teach your children that words are highly meaningful and important: speaking badly about someone is an act of verbal aggression and a serious lack of respect and manners, even when that person has behaved badly or we believe that he deserves our derision.
