If there is a quality that is lacking in this generation, it is self-control.
This is a culture steeped in hedonism, with a philosophy of “Do what makes you happy.” And the sad part is, there are few limits these days.
We eat super-sized meals, enjoy Netflix binges for hours on the weekends, are glued to our phones as we scroll, scroll, scroll…
and our kids pick up on these out-of-control behaviors.
The truth is, self-control is a muscle that has to be developed and strengthened throughout our life. It isn’t something that just comes over us and takes over.
That would be nice, but the very word “control” requires discipline and consistency.
And it must be started early.
That is why this 4-week study for kids on Self-Control is so important!
It teaches self-control through:
- Bible stories
We learn the importance of self-control with our devices, when we’re being bullied, and when we’re hanging out with friends who are tempting us to do something that’s wrong.
I grew up learning about character qualities, and I feel that this emphasis on character really helped to shape me into the person I am today.
That is why I got together with my sister (a veteran homeschool mom) to put together a new series of studies on character.
I have to give credit where credit is due – she put these studies together and I made them pretty.
Meet my sister:
Bonnie Dučić is a veteran homeschooling mom with 9+ years of experience. She has homeschooled all 4 of her bilingual children and loves helping others find joy in raising and schooling their own children. She also enjoys writing music and serving with her Croatian husband in his calling as senior pastor of Church of the Full Gospel in Zagreb, Croatia.
Simple Character Study – Self-Control
My goal with these Simple Character Studies is to provide a curriculum of studies to do with your kids for the whole school year.
Each Character Study includes 4 weeks of daily lessons that include a Bible story, memory verse, character definition, art projects, games, nature studies, books, and other projects that all work together to help your children clearly understand each quality.
In these lessons, they will learn the benefits these character qualities bring to us and others, and the consequences that occur when we do not have these character traits in our lives.
In the Simple Character Study of Self-Control we will learn from lives of Samson, Nehemiah, and others..
We will learn about how self-control is reflected in nature and why it is vital to our inter-personal relationships.
Included are some fun art projects, family projects, as well as fun games you will want to play over and over again!
