Character Education: Courage
"Where do you see courage, in yourself and in others? How can we help our children understand what courage looks and feels like?
Here are some tips for teaching your children about courage:
Help them see their own courage.When you see courage in your children, identify it. “It took courage to stand up for yourself like that.” “It sounds like you did the right thing even though it wasn’t easy. That is what we call courage.”
Make a family practice of connecting and contributing.
Self-reflect in the presence of your children.
Model doing what is right for you, even when it isn’t popular with your child."
