It goes without saying, that self-discipline is one of the most vital character traits that we can teach our children. It's also one of the hardest!
But never fear, I've compiled a list of 24 plug-and-play, no preparation needed, resources to help you do it! These feature books, movies, video clips and/or other resources to help elementary age children, teens, and YOU focus on developing self discipline all month long.
Warning: I'm giving you waaay too many resources to use.
Just pick and choose the ones that speak the most to you! The way it will work in my family, is we will do a read aloud all month. Then we'll watch a video or read a children's book every week. I'll also hang the printable in an easy-to-see place.
Please, let me know what this looks like for you and how you are doing it in YOUR home!
Video Clips for Children
here. A poor boy is taught extreme self discipline by his father without knowing exactly why. Soon, he is the linchpin of a revolution and discovers his royal heritage. (Even though this is listed for teens, my 9 and 7 year olds love listening to this story.)
Video Clips for Teens
Teen Movies VidAngel for this one.)
here. This teen overcomes peer pressure, addiction and a negative family culture to discover his best self.
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
