This Month's Character Focuses

We have been encouraged by several local families and the Duggars to actively pursue the development of Godly Character Qualities. These family had grown children who exhibited the Godly character we are seeking to develop in our own children. Although we were always reminding them of character helping them with character flaws & and celebrating successes but this was happening without a plan. So we have decided to actively have a measurable plan for character training into our home. When we decided to focus on character development we borrowed the 49 Character Qualities from the Duggars website. Each week for the next 49 school weeks we will focus on a different character quality this month we are focusing on the following:
  • Truthfulness
  • Alertness
  • Self-Control
  • Wisdom
  • Resourcefulness
During the month the children will work to memorize the definition & receive sticker awards for putting the character quality into action. We also fill out a worksheet that has the definition for them to copy and a place to write examples of the character quality found in the Bible during family devotional time. I will be looking for fun games and activities to do during our recess time to reinforce the weeks character quality.

Be encouraged as you do not grow weary in doing the good work of child training! Remember practice make progress!

Character is so important. We have always had a high focus on cultivating good character in our children, however we did not know how much we were lacking in real focus in this area until we joined ATI and started the Character portion of the curriculum and WOW what a difference it has made in our household, not just for us but our WHOLE FAMILY.

Keep up the good work :)
