Mrs. Good Choice is a former public school principal who has spent her life teaching children to make wise choices. She now wants to help YOU!
Teach your children to tell the TRUTH. How can I do that you may ask yourself? There are many great articles and books available to parents and educators about teaching honesty. In today’s world, the help of social media is just a finger tip away.
Pinterest is full of wonderful ideas and activities for parents and educators. I am including in this blog; How to Teach Children to Tell the Truth, a list of seven tips by Dr. Robyn Silverman. I agree with this list one hundred percent.
- Keep your cool
- Don’t set traps
- Avoid labels
- Give children a chance for a do-over
- Praise truth telling
- Figure out why they are lying
- Set a good example
You can find more on the Teach HONESTY says Mrs. Good Choice Pinterest Board.
If you are having problems with a child not being honest, encourage them to write to Mrs. Good Choice. Mrs. Good Choice is the new Dear Abby for children.
If you have questions I can help answer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You and your children may email me together. Expect an answer from Mrs. Good Choice in a timely manner.
I will be discussing teaching children about HONESTY all month.
Blessings until next time,
