This week’s character building topic is trustworthiness. The definition of trustworthiness is being able to be relied upon. The children have had and will be having conversations about being trustworthy or gaining trust back once it is lost as well as why it is important to be trustworthy.
As a group, the children played a game called two truths and a lie and talked about trying ‘trust falls’. The word “trust” is used throughout the week during everyday moments between the staff and children to show the importance of trusting and being trusted. Along with the games the children also were given a character building packet you can see below in a link. When a child has been through trauma it effects them on different levels. Here is a link describing the impact trauma has on trust.
