Teaching integrity to teenagers 
Between social media, peer pressures, and even family pressures, teenagers are inundated with decisions every day. Decisions which may require them to make choices of whether or not to be honest and truthful. So how do you teach them to remain true to their values and moral code?

An article in the Washington Post I read recently outlines eight ways to teach them to be truthful. Check out the article for a deeper look at these ways.
  1. Maintain a mindset of curiosity.
  2. Help them see the long view.
  3. Consider the root cause.
  4. Model honesty.
  5. Provide a runway.
  6. Carefully consider consequences.
  7. Don't be afraid to have it out.
  8. Talk about values.

These teenage years are critical. Now more than ever they need our continuous guidance to prepare them for those next immediate steps beyond high school.
