If you had free time, would you spend it talking with your family? If you had fun topics to discuss, would you share them with your children?
In the e-book, Character Building: Problem Stories for Family Discussions you'll find simple solutions for finding the time you need and lots of interesting topics to discuss. Each story promotes speaking and listening skills.
The problem stories include common situations found in most families. One includes a girl named Madison. She hates homework, stomps on her math book and yells, "I hate math! I'll never use this stuff! I'm not going to do it!"
If your children hate homework too, this story gives them the opportunity to discuss Madison's problem and their own feelings about homework.
Your children will access their own wisdom and give their best advice to Madison. The 5 character building questions at the end of each story will help them.
You won't need to yell, sell, or tell your children how to think about feelings, behaviors, or attitudes. With these discussions your children will be thinking, sharing, and internalizing their own good advice. When you teach them to think for themselves, you prepare them for life.
This e-book ends with 51 discussion starters like:
1. What is you first memory?
2. How would you know if you were successful?
3. Share a difficult challenge that taught you something.
4. Talk about a time when you were brave.
5. What's one of the nicest things you've done for someone?
Children love sharing their opinions. They feel confident when their ideas are accepted. Closeness with family members grows and they learn the art of sharing their thoughts. That's the wonder of fun family discussions.
When you guide your children through discussions and approve of their opinions, suggestions, and advice, you build their character too.
Raise a loving thoughtful family the easy way. Pick up this e-book Character Building: Problem Stories for Family Discussions.
