The definition of good behavior from the dictionary is:
satisfactory, proper, or polite conduct.
conduct conformable to law; orderly conduct: The convict's sentence was reduced for good behavior.
proper fulfillment of the duties of an office, especially a public office: The incumbent could not be discharged during good behavior.
Here are some tips to teach your children about good behavior:
1. To be a role model
2. To be patient
3. To be a good listener
4. To know the rules, follow the rules at home
5. To know the rules, follow the rules at school
6. Together, make a list of rules, what you expect from your child and display the chart/list
7. Share a story about a time that you misbehaved, what were the consequences

Some Behavior Bear Activities and Events Through the Years
Past, Present and Future. This is my Girl Scout Uniform when I was in Scouts as a young girl. I couldn't believe the beautiful badges that are available today! Their ethics remain the same, teaching our young girls vital core values and Characters of Character is proud to be a part of it. This picture was when local Scout Troops kicked off their cookie sales with Manners Monkey!
There are so many variable ways to teach children vital core values and empower them with the tools to be proud of who they are and to respect themselves and others. If you know of a Scout Troop who would enjoy learning about the Characters of Character, please share us with them. Remember, YOU are a role model, there is a child who is listening to what you say, watching what you do and wanting to someday be just like you. Be of good character.
I'll keep it short and sweet this blog. Would you like to learn how you can support these adorable characters and make a difference in the life of a child? Visit us online to learn more!
