Bible Verse:  “…and to your faith, add GOODNESS” 2 Peter 1:5b

Prayer: Dear Jesus, everything about You is good.  Help me to make good choices so that I can be like You.  Guide me to see that Your way is the best way.  Amen

Take-It-Home Activities:

Parents:  Do a good deed with your child for someone else this week, then explain to your child why you took the time to help someone else.  Explain what making good choices does for your heart!

Birth – Age 2:  Choices help children develop independence and individuality; however, too many choices can be overwhelming for young children.  A good rule of thumb is to offer your child the number of choices as is their age (two choices for a two year old = would you like to wear your blue shirt or green shirt).  This sets your children up for success and helps them develop the skills to make good choices!

Age 3 – Kindergarten:  The next time you read a story or watch a show, talk with your children about choices the characters made and what the results were of those choices.  Ask them what choices they would have made in a similar situation.
