Today at scouts, we made a special treat – and your Wolf Scout is bringing some home to share. But before you taste these, make sure you talk about the saying above. What does it mean?
Would the spider’s web get tangled if he kept having to change his plans – or tell a different story to cover up his first little lie?
Can it be hard to remember what you told someone if it wasn’t totally true? Would it be easier to remember the truth? Does it matter if you just tell a little “white lie?”
We also talked about some times when it might be a temptation to be dishonest – like when the referee doesn’t notice you broke a rule – Or when your teacher or parent asks if you finished studying or doing a chore. Or when your friends challenge you to take some candy or make fun of a new kid at school.
All this month, post a picture at the front of your meeting room, showing a Cub Scout giving the Promise and the phrase “A Scout is Honest.”Be alert to recognize any time a boy is honest – or try the idea below.
