Putting Assets into Action: Promoting integrity and honesty

-A A +A
By The Staff

This week we take a look at Asset #28, integrity and Asset #29, honesty.  According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when the young person acts on convictions and stands up for his or her beliefs,” and “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they are able to tell the truth, even when it is not easy.”

According to local data, 74 percent of youth reported having the integrity asset and 67 percent reported having the Honesty Asset. Those numbers aren’t too bad, although if you relate them to grades, we’re looking at Cs and Ds, but even so, it is a passing grade.

We can start with a look at integrity. I’m not sure how often we’re able to demonstrate our integrity that is of notice these days. Your integrity isn’t always visible and the nicest person you know might not be the one with the most integrity.

One way you might demonstrate your personal integrity is by showing how you stand by your word, even when you don’t feel like it.
