Teaching Your Children Values by Linda and Richard Eyre
“Teaching Your Children Values” is an excellent guide for family home evening lessons. It provides one important lesson a month because there are 12 values. There are also ideas to help your family focus on the value through out the month. Most all parents can agree these values should be taught in the home. The book is not written with a specific religious influence and does not use scripture as supporting reference.
The Eyre’s provide engaging material for each value that will both entertain and instruct. There are twelve values to focus on, one for every month of the year. You can easily repeat the pattern and focus on all these values year after year.
- Self-Reliance and Potential
- Self-Disciple and Moderation
- Fidelity and Chastity
- Loyalty and Dependability
- Unselfishness and Sensitivity
- Kindness and Friendliness
- Justice and Mercy.
One idea from the book that our family really enjoyed were the weekly special awards. Over dinner we would talk about experiences from the week and then make a big presentation for the winner of the award. The award winner would then hang the award on their door for the rest of the week.
This book is an absolute “must have” for any family home evening lesson library. You can buy it at Amazon.com in Kindle and paper formats.
