At boys.sg, a common character trait we hope our boys will develop is honesty. Whatever character we sow in the boys from young will more or less determine what they will reap as they grow up. How can we educate our boys to be honest then? Again, it takes a lot of effort and training at our home ground. 

 
Encourage our boys to be honest in whatever they do. If they make mistakes, let them know that they will be forgiven as long as they are honest with it. And you know what? Boys being boys, have high sense of pride and ego. Therefore as parents, we need to create a loving and protecting environment to hone their honesty character trait. Speaking of which, we need to set examples for the boys to follow. Role modelling is critical in any character development. Our daily behaviours and speeches bring upon great impact on the boys lives.
 
In our next post, we will be zooming into a few scenarios on how to better develop honesty in our boys and how to deal with dishonesty.
 
Stay tuned,
