Have you ever done something that you knew was the right thing to do, but you were scared to do it? Or maybe you did something that looked very hard, but you decided to try it. That is courage in action and you probably felt very good about what you did. And you should!
Courage shows up in many ways all around you. Courage is standing up for a friend, helping someone in need or sticking with something that is hard for you to do, for example: when you stop someone from littering. As a growing child, courage is one of the most important things your child can develop. Having courage makes them a better person, a better student and a better citizen.
The next time your child is afraid to do something but he or she knows it is the right thing to do, encourage them to just do it. See how it makes them feel. Guide and help them do something worthwhile that will benefit other people. Let’s make our children brave, strong and confident.
October’s issue of The Child City invokes these value through the story ‘The happy trumpet’, draws inspiration from the brave act of Zen Sadavarte, a 10 year old girl that saved many lives and don’t miss out the beautiful essays by children on ‘My Teacher, My Inspiration’. Winning entries published in October issue.
