Have you heard of the boy who cried wolf? He was not truthful nor kind so he was not trustworthy. When a real wolf came no one believed him so the sheep were eaten.
Being truthful is important in honesty. If you do something wrong and lie you will be in worse trouble. Tell the truth it is better.
Kindness is important too. You need to be kind. This will also help to get friends. When you lie people can’t trust you. The boy who cried wolf was not trustworthy. Being trustworthy is important in honesty.
So you now know the basics on honesty which is part of character. Which everyone has.
Fainess is Better Than Cheating
By Haley Herbert
Last year I tried playing four square. It was hard. I kept trying and trying. I finally got someone out. I moved up to the second box. I stayed there for a while until I got one particular boy out. They made up excuses so he could stay in and get me out. They kept doing it and doing it and doing it until we all got tired.
We were on the fourth grade court so we decided to play by their rules for a while when they came outside. They didn’t let us play at first, but that didn’t last long. They had their teacher’s ball so we asked her and she made them let us play. Things were fine then.
When fourth grade had to go back in, two kids started cheating and making excuses. So I decided to make a list of people who hated it when some kids cheated. Tons of people signed it. I showed it to the two boys who cheated and explained how it wasn’t fair when they stayed in the game after being called out. They felt bad and started playing by the rules. They realized that if we all play fair it’s more fun for everyone.
