As a mother of six children, I have found that “good character” is not something that just happens with a child. In truth, it takes intentionality, effort, teaching, effort, role modeling, and even more effort. Of course, like with all parenting, some days are more difficult than others. And, in fact, some are more discouraging than others. Furthermore, teaching character to our children doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of daily lessons and examples. Simply put, it takes years of little baby steps. Particularly small steps of teaching. And, most importantly, living an example of good character in front of them.
With that in mind, I’d love to share the suite of resources that I’ve developed. As well as, a few podcasts and other helpful things that may encourage you as you teach and instill character in your children.
