Try-It Tuesday: Habit & Character Training Cards

"I am, I can, I ought, I will" -- Charlotte Mason

"Sow a thought and you reap an act; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny." --Erasmus.

If your kids are anything like mine, they occasionally need a little character training. Just from time to time. (like from 7am til 9pm, lol)

Here is a tool that may work for you: Free Character / Habit Training Cards

You can download a .pdf on that webpage that includes a template for customizable training cards. The page also includes tips and ideas for using the template with your family.

This is a very Charlotte Mason-kind of thing to do, as she advocates habit training.

Give it a try. Come back and tell me how it worked. Maybe I'll have tried it myself by then!

I'm really awful at setting any kind of organized limits or character instruction for my kids. I often wonder how they'll turn out. Hmmm...
I thought of you today, since you've had some "kids with messy bedrooms" issues. We spent all day cleaning The Big Bad Bedroom. It's clean now and I set some rules. Let's see if *I* can stick to the rules!
