Trustworthiness: worthy of confidence
“I trust you.” Those three words are so good to hear from another person. That person could be your parents, other family members, your teachers or your friends. So, how do you get someone to trust you? It really is easy but it is something you must earn. The way you earn trust is by being honest, keeping your promises, and by being loyal.
Here’s how you can earn it:
tell the truth.
be your best.
stand up for what you believe.
keep your word.
return what you borrow.
Have you read the book, “The Berenstain Bears and the Truth” by Stan and Jan Berenstain? Brother and Sister Bear learn how important it is to tell the truth after they accidentally break Mama Bear's most favorite lamp. Papa Bear helps them find the words that set everything right again. This is a good book that teaches boys and girls how it is better to tell the truth and not to lie no matter what they have done.
I bet you have read books that teach about and show examples of trustworthiness. Share them on the comments section. Be sure to give the name of the book and the author and how the character in it learned trustworthiness. Reread the points I listed about how you can earn trust. Then share your books with me and everyone else at J. H. House. What fun!
