This month our family is learning the character trait of Gentleness, using the book, Achieving True Success: How to Build Character As a Family .
Gentleness vs. Harshness
Gentleness is showing consideration and personal concern for others.
· Show good manners.
· Reject violence as a solution to my problems.
· Look for ways to ease the pain of others.
· Not annoy or irritate others.
· Be a peacemaker.
Each of the kids and myself have a 3-ringed binder we use for morning lessons. In that binder are page protectors. As we learn new songs, character traits, memory verses, etc… we each get a copy for our binder. This way everyone has a copy in front of them and we can review previous memorization. This also makes a great way to document their work and a keepsake for them! In the mornings I say, “OK, get your binders!” and they know it’s time to get school lessons rolling!!!
This a great character building site: Character Journal
