How to Be Brave
Sometimes things make you feel afraid or nervous, even though they’re good things for you to do. When you try to do a good thing even though you’re unsure of how it will turn out, you’re being brave. Everyone likes brave people, so you should try to be brave whenever you can!
Here are some ways you can be brave:
Stand up for your friends. If one of your friends is getting bullied, stand up to the bully and tell them to stop. If they’re a lot bigger than you, gather some friends first. If you all tell the bully to stop, he or she will have no choice. Just be careful not to become bullies yourselves!
Always try new foods. Eating a new food can be scary because it might taste bad. But it might taste good too! You’ll never know if you don’t try it.
Introduce yourself to new people at school. You should never talk to strangers, but other kids at school who you just don’t know yet are safe. It can be scary talking to a classmate you don’t know yet, but do it anyway. You might make a new friend!
Learn to ride a bicycle. Riding a bike is very hard at first. But once you know how, it’s lots of fun! Make sure to get help from your parents and always wear a helmet!
Never stop wondering, reading or learning!
