Welcome to a New Year of FreeBEEs. Every Friday I will share a great list of educational FreeBEE resources. PLUS...there's the added bonus of this being a monthly link up...where you can showcase your freebie posts or discover more amazing freebies from my blogging friends. The blogger link up will start on the first Friday of every month and end on the first day of the following month. Each month there will be a new link up. Link up anything that is educational and FREE including GIVEAWAYS!
Character training is very important to our family. It is one thing that we are constantly working on...and not just with the children. Both my husband and I have things we could fix in our own characters and improving ourselves is just as important as helping our children with their character. It is our hope that we will raise our children will have good attitudes, perseverance, respect, honesty, self-control, contentment, etc. We also want them to be kind, loving and helpful to everyone. And hopefully with good character qualities they will one day become great leaders.
Are you frustrated with your children's attitudes? Do you wish the children helped around the house a little more? Are you constantly yelling at your children? Then keep reading.....
This week I started watching the "Building Character With Children" videos by Shirley Solis. Currently 2 videos have been posted so you are just in time to sign up and join in the fun. Video 1 discusses, "how to teach new habits to your children" and Video 2 discusses, "why children don't want to do their chores." The videos are really short less than 10 minutes and provide lots of great information. Best of all they are FREE. They are great for ALL parents and both secular and Christian families.
I must admit that the habit trick in video 1 really works and is so simple. I had tried something previously but it never really stuck...but this trick did!
Also be sure to check out my Character, Virtues and Organization for Kids Post from 2012 there are lots of helpful FREE resources in that post too. Also Spirituality For Kids Tools To Win The Game Of Life is another fabulous FREE resource for helping children with character training.
Building Character with Children is a brand new video-based program with homeschool mom, author, and speaker Shirley Solis. In these short, 7-minute videos, Shirley shares her experience as a mom of 6 children, with tips and tricks to build strong, desirable character traits in your children!
In Building Character with Children, you will learn:
- How to train your children to learn a new habit in just a few minutes a day (so you won’t have to keep repeating yourself!)
- The 3 reasons why your children don’t do their chores AND what to do about it!
- What to do about sibling rivalry and how to resolve conflicts easily and peacefully!
- The #1 reason why children are lacking character today and how to change that!
