Teaching Virtue ~ FREE Character Study

Benjamin Franklin said, “Without virtue, man can have no happiness in this world.” We sure are seeing this a lot today. Many human beings have lost their moral code and knowing the difference between what is right and what is wrong. It is so important to teach virtue to our children, especially in this fallen world.

Virtue isn’t just a character trait. Being a virtuous person takes decision making skills. You choose the right road, or the wrong one. This is something we can teach to our children especially at home.

Once they are out in the world so many things will be thrown at them. It can be hard to make the right decisions when you are surrounded by many that are not making them. If they have had practice making good decisions during their childhood and teen years, most often they will carry that out when they leave your home.

Teaching Virtue

We can teach virtue to our kids by setting the standard and leading by example. They model what they see at home. If you are making wise choices they will want to follow suit. Also, talking openly about why you have made certain decisions and making decisions together as a family helps.

Establishing rules and setting limits at home will help them to make wise choices while still living at home. Why are there limits set on technology, especially the internet?

Talk openly about movie and music choices and the dangers of clicking on the wrong thing and what it can lead to. Why do you have standards and rules on what can and can not be watched at home? What are your reasons for that? Explain these to your kids as you set them.

Doing a character trait study together is a wonderful way to start an open discussion with your family.
