As we spring forward into a new season, it is the perfect time to start fresh, try something new and be positive as we slide into the end of the school year.
We’ll look at two topic areas this week, as we have a lot of Assets to cover.
First, we have asset number 28, Integrity, this is when a young person acts on conviction and stands up for his or her beliefs.
Second, there’s honesty, asset number 29, when a young person tells the truth even when it is not easy.
If you’re talking about your own children, these areas should start at a very young age. If you build on these areas when topics are trivial then when times are tough, you will have a foundation that is firm.
There are many things that can assist you in developing these skills along the way, great teachers, wonderful programs, good books and more.
It has been awhile since we threw some numbers your way, so let’s go to the data and see how things have been progressing, or regressing over the last several years.
As the survey looks at students in seventh through 12th grade, this is how the data stacks up for integrity.
2009 data — 74 percent
2013 data — 73 percent
Next we’ll take a gander at honesty, and the survey says?
2009 data — 67 percent
2013 data — 70 percent
