Character Resources to use with your children

Mandy Hoffard spoke at MOTS today and had a stack of character resources she used with her kids. We'd like to share them with you!

Miller Family Storybooks - Stories in the life of the ‘Miller family’ in which character lessons are learned.  She said good for all but her boys really liked them.  Age 4-5 on up.

Uncommon Courtesy for Kids - A Training Manual for Everyone - Different manners lessons. They would role play the different scenarios.

Rules for Young Friends - Same author as above. For use when having to deal with neighbor kids and friends.

For Instruction In Righteousness - This looked pretty cool. Seems like a concordance for addressing character/behavior issues with scripture. 

Young Peacemaker - They are going through this now, Mandy loves it.  For older elementary kids.

Bible Stories to Read - Daily bible story book for young kids with questions and corresponding coloring pages.

If-Then Chart  - The "If…Then" chart. - Chart site Mandy loves. - General mom info site she uses.
