Just another silly Video we are sharing with you…Today – on A Character Quality we have learned in our home over the years.
I am always reminded of two things while teaching Character in my home-
1) Don’t expect your children to have virtue and good behavior/character if you haven’t fully taught them WHAT IT is.
2.)Just because children are taught what Character/Virtue is – doesn’t mean that your children won’t be children- growing in wisdom and making mistakes with their strong personalities.
Attentiveness- Showing the worth of a person by giving full concentration to his or her words.
The Five “I Will’s” :
-I Will – Look at people when they speak to me.
-I Will- Ask questions when I don’t understand.
-I Will- Sit or Stand up straight
-I Will- Not draw attention to myself.
-I Will- Keep my eyes, ears, hands, feet and mouth from distractions.
I will look at someone speaking
And I’ll listen all I can
I will sit or stand up straight
Like a Soldier in Command,
I will not draw attention;
I will guard against distraction.
I will learn to ask the questions
That will help me understand.
Commitments are important steps
To guard us from disaster.
