This Week's Virtue is Reliability

Reliability means that others can depend on you. You keep your commitments and give your best to every job. You are responsible. You don’t forget, and you don’t need to be reminded. Other people can relax knowing things are in your reliable hands.


 You are practicing Reliability when you...

Make promises you can keep

Treat your agreements seriously

Plan ahead

Do your best

Finish on time

Find another way if obstacles occur



Some examples of reliability are:


You agreed to be home by a certain time and a friend invites you to do something

fun. You go home at the time you agreed to.


It is your turn to do the dishes and you’re not in the mood. You do them anyway.


You promised your Mom you would brush your teeth after breakfast and the

school bus is coming. You take your toothbrush with you and brush them at school.



Your part of a team report is due tomorrow and you feel too sleepy to finish it. You do your best and do it anyway.
