The stories of "Peter and the Wolf" and Aesop's
"Mercury and the Woodsman" show how honesty is one of the hardest values to develop. Children naturally lie as part of the learning process so it should be expected.

Talking through "Peter and the Wolf" will show how constant lying will eventually lead to mistrust and disbelief. But always reward honesty with thanks and understanding.

Courage is shown in the story, again by Aesop, of "The Boy and the Nettle". Getting a child to carry out first aid on a small cut or bruise will help them overcome the fear of simple injuries.

Courage comes in many forms and to a small child the first day at school can be frightening.  Don’t hide things that are going to happen; talk about them step by step.
