Building Character

Years ago when I began home educating I was extremely worried about whether or not I could teach my children well academically. Little did I know that teaching the academics would become one of the easiest parts of home educating. Good wholesome character was by far the most difficult and time consuming activity of our little homeschool. Training the mental and moral qualities during the daily grind of living could at times be rather challenging and at other times the thrill of seeing the children own behaviour and lead courageously made the struggle deeply rewarding.

A couple of our families would like to share some of their resources with you to help you on the journey of training character with your children.
