MEASURABLE-(how much, how many)
ATTAINABLE-(within your reach)
REALISTIC-( Do- able not too easy but not too hard)
TIMELY- (set a timeline…must have a deadline)
Character- a person’s use of self- control to act on responsible values.
Values- principles or standards that guide the way a person behaves.
Think about your friends…What responsible values do they act on… honesty, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
If you are responsible, you avoid harmful behaviors that could damage your physical health.
Showing the 6 traits of good character require self- control. This involves fighting the urge to act in ways that go against these values.
Demonstrating good character helps to build a strong positive reputation- what people think of you.
Character is not determined by heredity
Many factors influence the way our character develops.
Family- parents and family members influence character.
School- over the years, you add to the lessons you learned from your family- you learn to be responsible, respectful, and disciplined.
Peers- As you get older, you spend more time with your friends. Positive and negative peer pressure has an influence on your character.
Media- TV, radio, magazines, movies, internet all influence who we are
Role Model- a person whose attitudes and behavior serve as an example for others.

Suppose you have the flu, but you want your friend to come over after school and watch a movie. How can you make a responsible decision?
* Is it healthful? *Do I show respect for myself and others?
* Is it safe? * Do I follow the guidelines of responsible adults?
*Is it legal? * am I demonstrating good character?
3. Tell what the responsible decision is.
4. Evaluate your decision- How did it work? Would you change anything about what you did? What could/ would you do differently next time?
Consequence- is the result of an action. When making responsible decisions, it helps to weigh the outcomes to help make the best decisions.
Risk- a chance of loss, failure, or harm.
Calculated Risk- a chance that you consider to be worthwhile after considering the possible outcomes.
Dare- A request that someone makes to test a person’s courage.
Restitution- making good for any loss or damage.
Example- you are playing with your dog outside in the yard and it’s muddy. You don’t realize his paws are muddy when you let him back in the house. How could you make restitution?
Personality- is a person’s unique blend of traits. A trait is a distinguishing quality or characteristic.
Some traits are inherited such as hair color and height, while others develop over time. All of these traits make up who you are (your personality).
