Developmental Asset of the Month

Asset #28     Integrity | Young person acts on convictions and stands up for her or his beliefs

Local Data: 78% of La Plata County youth report acting on their convictions and beliefs. (Assets Survey 2015)

Essential Question: In what ways do we model personal integrity for our children to emulate?

Tips for increasing children’s personal integrity:

  • Be proactive about teaching positive values before “incidents” occur.
  • Have conversations at meal or drive times so your children can hear how you handle tough situations.
  • Be prepared to support your child if they are teased or belittled for stating their personal values.
