SERIES 2: CHOOSE COURAGE

Character Trait: Courage
Courage becomes more important as students start to identify who they are and what they want for their lives.  Today’s children are subjected to many outside influences—magazines, television, movies, internet, peers, etc.  It can become hard for them to distinguish between positive and negative influences. Having courage means being assertive and standing up for your own values and boundaries.
