Values for Children

“To educate a person in mind and not morals is to educate a menace to society” ~Theodore Roosevelt

“100 doctorates from the finest universities in the world cannot compensate for a lack of values and character.  Values are central to your children’s success and fulfillment in life.  After all, who is so intelligent that he is happy without love?  What person is so brilliant that she has no need for thankfulness?  Yet, even the poor and uneducated will be revered if they are honest.  These values are universally admired.  That is why instilling them in our young children is so important.”
~ Blue Manor’s “Book of Virtues”That is why I am bringing you The ABC’s of Values for Children.  It is my goal to help you integrate these values into your children’s daily lives.  Click a value to see it’s definition, verse, and resources to learn and ultimately live.

    In His Grip,

  6. Your ABC’s are pretty interesting. My child would have hard time into understanding some of them. My child’s education is just part of my priority because raising him up the proper(filled with love) and cool way is my top priority.

    • Yes, some of these values are hard even for adults to grasp. However, it is my goal to offer resources to help you begin that process of understanding. Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Hmmm … well, A-L are clickable anyway.

    I know wisdom is good, I need to figure out how to justify it though. I need a paper trail and the bible verse isn’t likely to cut it. Faith is easily replaced as confidence.

  10. Just pinned this post. Fantastic resource! Thanks for putting it together, Janine!
