In September & October ...
We've had a bad case of the flu in our house for the past few weeks. We are heading towards good health again slowly but aren't quite there yet. This means we have done very little on our character lessons for this month (or any lessons at all really). So I've decided that we will do gentleness over two months.
Gentleness is so important to teach our house full of boys. They often think they can be rough 'Just because they are boys'. We are working on being gentle in our words, our voice, our actions, our belonging and our hearts. There are so many areas of life we can bring this into.
Today I talked to my 3 year old about being gentle when opening the door, rather than just running at it full speed and pushing it.
