Teaching the importance of trust

Children believe adults, and the day they realize that adults don’t always tell the truth is a sad one.
As a preteen small town girl, I vividly remember walking past a phone booth, pulling down the coin return slot and being stunned as a huge amount of change fell into my cupped hands.

Knowing that I would be reprimanded if I were to return home late, I asked a passerby if he would do me a big favor and take the coins to the phone company. He agreed to do this for me, and I was incredibly appreciative and relieved that I’d now get home on time.
