It's not unusual for children to speak before they think about what they're going to say. Over time, they develop the ability to distinguish what they should say and what should be left unsaid. The first step in teaching children this skill is showing them how their words can hurt others - whether they mean to or not. These activities can help kids learn how to pause, think about how what they may say can affect others, and choose whether to make a caring statement or say nothing at all. Included are worksheets and discussion questions to help reinforce the message from the storybook Freddie the Fly: Truth or Care for students in grades K through 5.
