Good: adjective. Being positive or desirable in nature; not bad or poor.
For the purposes of continuing to break-down and discuss The Pledge, this week we are focused specifically on being “a good child, a good sibling and a good friend”. Think about the concept of “being good” in a broad sense and identify some ways that you can guide your kids towards consistently “good” behavior and making consistently “good” choices.
Here some things that my 9 year old daughter came up with when we talked about being good, and specifically being a good child, a good sibling and a good friend:
A Good Child is:
A good listener
Caring to friends and family members
A Good Sibling is:
Sets a good example
A Good Friend is:
Someone who works at creating a friendly environment
So sit down with your kids and make your own lists! Get them thinking about ways to be a better sibling and friend. You never know, along the way you may learn some things about yourself and ways you can be better, too! It’s never too late to begin being a better person. We always have room for improvement in this area
Have a GOOD weekend!
