The more we talk with kids about how to think through the big character trait lessons— how to believe in yourself, how to respect others, how to be responsible, what being honest really means—the more kids gain the self-esteem and self-confidence to make good choices.
By talking about situations they are experiencing in school or with their friends, parents can help children build confidence in their ability to call on their good traits to guide their choices, even when you aren’t watching.
Each Talking with Trees book for kids (written for grades K-4) is a quiet conversation in a real-life situation that teaches kids about a positive character trait like honesty, respect, and responsibility. The books present situations around listening to your conscience, treating others the way you want to be treated, learning from mistakes, and more.
