Courage

Courage is so much more than slaying a mammoth or waging war. People need courage to stand up against bullies or to report an adult's inappropriate behavior or make their own decisions even when the peer group pressures them towards something else. Feeling brave starts deep in the heart and a habit of feeling brave and confident can start in the youngest years with facing the fear of touching a bug or snake or learning how to handle matches safely. Be sure to encourage this aspect of your child's character. For children who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally, an Adult Intervention Form may be a useful tool for requesting help in a written format.
