Teaching kids to have self control is one of the most important character traits we can teach in my character building series.
I have put together a this series for you, and want to give you many resources for working on attributes that we want to establish in our kids.
If you are new to my character building series, I welcome you. Let me tell you a little bit more about these lessons. If you check out my character building tab, you will discover 52 character traits we work on throughout the year, which equals one word per week to focus on with your kids.
\Hovering over the tab will reveal all of the words. Each character trait has 7-9 lessons, so if you wanted to work on character daily, this can be an amazing resource.
This year, I want to focus on cleaning up my series by presenting the lessons to you be compiling all of my lessons on a particular week, this week focusing on self control. In this series, you will find a word, definition, scripture to memorize, book lists and a number of activities and crafts related to the topic. I have also included links to other bloggers who have lessons on the trait. I
I hope you are inspired to build character with your kids because being intentional in your parenting will help give great direction to both you and your children.

I hope you realize the importance of raising up kids with character. The resources provided here meant to inspire and equip. Whether you are working with your own kids at home or other kids in a school or church setting, I thank you for taking the extra effort to teach kids about learning to have self control.
I’ve heard so many benefits of self-regulation that I practice it with my kids all the time. We make lists, we play red light/green light, we teach delayed gratification. What a great round up you’ve collected! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you so much for commenting. I’m so glad this post resonated with you. You are so right that self-regulation is important. Just think of all the pressures that will come as teenagers and adults. If they can’t learn to have self control, they’ll compromise themselves in many areas. Glad to hear of other like-minded moms.
Thank you for adding my post to your list of resources! It was a great lesson that I need to remember to do again next school year. 🙂
