Because our week was slightly off, I chose to just do character training throughout the week. This seemed to fit as we were having issues with behavior's etc. I made the girls act out skits on how to behave and react to situations the wrong way and then the right way. Oh they loved this and have been striving to be better little girls. I also have a red sheet of construction paper that I leave on the book shelf for them to grab and hold up to let me know something is bothering them with one of their sister's. This is coming along swimmingly and has cut down on screaming, whining, tattling, etc. If you have girls or are a girl you know how drama filled girls can be, haha!
I am currently researching a variety of character training studies/curriculum's to implement into our curriculum the next homescschool year. I would like to do character training along with our Bible readings before doing our academics. I am hoping this will make even a bigger difference.
What do you think of character training? Do you think it is often overlooked? Please share your thoughts, feelings, concerns, etc., I would love to hear from you.
Blessed to be a wife and a mom
