I wanted to share this exciting find with all of my homeschooling friends. We are going to begin using this awesome book this week to help us draw some definite guide lines in our home. This book lists 21 rules that will help children know what is expected of them. We will go over all 21 rules and then really study one rule per week to help us remember them. There is a poster for each rule and a coloring page to go with each rule.
The fact that sometimes my children honestly do not know why they are in trouble is the main reason I decided to order this book and use it. It is , after all, our responsibility as parents to make rules plain and clear. Then if the children understand what is expected of them, they will be more able to make the right choices.
I really like the list of rules that include things like:
“We take good care of everything God has given us.”
“We do not create unnecessary work for others.”
“When we make a mess, we clean it up.”
“We consider one another’s interests ahead of our own.”
Good lessons to be learned! These could also be used for application stories in Bible classes since the book is reproducible.
