I recently read in an article that what you teach your children in the first five years of life is crucial to their character development. I wish I would have saved the article to reference for you. It really hits home with me and reminds me that I have a lot of work to do before my kiddos go to school.
One way to help your child learn about trust is to read books at their level then have a discussion about what happened. For more ideas on how to teach trust to young children, check out my Make A Difference Monthly post.
