Character education begins at home, but Nuffer is a partner in helping build character in your child. Encouraging children to think independently and to do the right thing are the bare bones of character education.
In April, the character trait of the month is TRUSTWORTHINESS. A TRUSTWORTHY child is honest and doesn’t lie, cheat, or steal! TRUSTWORTHINESS also means that a child will do what he says he’s going to do and has the courage to do the right thing. Most importantly, a TRUSTWORTHY child is loyal to family and friends. You can help your child be trustworthy at home by requiring your child to tell the truth and return things that doesn’t belong to him.
Don’t forget to continue to encourage and reinforce the other five character traits: Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Recognize your child when he/she demonstrates good character!
