You introduce SELF-CONTROL to a child by saying, “We are going to learn together about SELF-CONTROL. What do you think when you hear the word SELF-CONTROL?”
Based on the child’s answer, you measure his or her understanding of the word, and then what do you do next?
You get children totally engaged in understanding the trait. You read the enchanting book with them. You talk about the story. You display the large picture charts of characters. You do the associated crafts and activities. You teach them the catchy song, and sing it with them at opportune times each day. You keep them thinking about this trait until they understand it and begin to match their behavior to it.
