“Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.”
When I first began my character development series, I had not started doing the “I Will” Statements yet. Today, I will add in some “I Will” statements for self control since our third week of January is a focus on “self control.” We made this cute board to highlight the focus phrases. I got the idea for “I Will” Statements from “Character First,” a character based curriculum. Although I haven’t used a lot of their content, I wanted to give them credit for this idea. Our four phrases this week are:
1. I will tame my tongue.
2. I will use my hands gently.
3. I will consider the consequences.
4. I will learn to say “no.”
