We live in a world that seemingly does not allow trust easily. In my opinion, among the many dimensions that need to be developed in a child during her/ his school years, building trust as a socio-emotional skill is one of the key ones. Trust is confidence in the integrity of a human being. It assumes that others generally have good intentions, but sometimes the circumstances in which they live, leave them with no option but to constantly operate with fear and lack of trust. Sometimes, the lack of basic resources prompts children into negative behaviour, such as a lack of respect for the self, surroundings or even misdemeanours, like theft.
