Courage is not the absence of fear. It is taking action in the face of fear.

Courage is often associated with soldiers, police officers, fire fighters, and astronauts. These people are courageous, but it also takes courage to be a good parent and a good citizen.

It takes courage to fight the temptations and struggles in everyday life. It takes courage to succeed when others would like to see you fail. Finally, it takes courage to stand up for those less fortunate. No one would disagree that courage is a valuable character trait — one that will serve as a foundational piece in your child's life.

To Do

  1. Go over the Courage (pdf) poster together and put it on the refrigerator.
  2. Read the story, Bamboo People, with your child and discuss the questions at the end.
  3. Do the What Does Courage Mean to You? activity to reinforce the courage character trait.
