Publisher Description

One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is a strong sense of personal values. Helping your children develop such values as honesty, trustworthiness, and self-discipline is as important in their education as teaching them to cross the street safely. The values you teach your children are their best protection from the influences of peer pressure and the temptations of consumer culture. With their own values clearly defined, your children can make their own decisions -- rather than imitate their friends or the latest fashions.

In Teaching Your Children Values Linda and Richard Eyre present a practical, proven, month-by-month program -- full of proven meathods for teaching values to kids of all ages. With games, family activities, and value-building exercises, their program can help you develop a family relationship that is strong, caring, and supportive.

"The concept behind this book is to take each month and focus on a different value (or set of related values) to teach your children. It gives ideas for teaching those values to kids of all ages. I read the introduction chapters and several of the chapters on values to teach, but I quickly realized this is a book I would love to have, simply because I intend to follow it's suggestions and will need it as a reference more often than the 3-6 weeks I can have it from the library."

    " For this new year, we are using this book, and the Book of Nurturing, to shape our Family Home Evenings. I like the way the Eyre's present their material in easy, organized ways. So far it has been fun to implement some of their ideas. "

    " I liked the idea of having a value that you focus on each month. The different teaching methods and activities (depending on ages) were helpful too. I think mostly I would come up with my own lessons on teaching it but this book is good as a reference. "

    " So, this is another reference book. I have not read it cover to cover. However, I am planning to use this book for 2010 to actually teach and remind my kids of these values. Some of the values include: Honesty, Courage, Self-discipline, Loyalty, Kindness, etc. These and others are all things I like to see my kids be. Maybe I'll report back in Jan. 2011 on how it went...

    " What a great book! This book has great practical ideas for teaching preschoolers, elementary schoolers, and adolescents different values discussed in the book. I only read the preschool sections because that's what applied to me, so I haven't actually read the entire book. But what I read was fantastic. "

    " Great book! I want to start teaching Colton a value a month, like this book teaches. Since he's 4, not all of these values are applicable to his life right now so I picked 6 and will teach those. I love that the book had ideas for teaching preschoolers, school-aged kids, and also teens with specific examples. I'd recommend this book to everyone with kids, no matter their ages. "

    " Great practical suggestions that any good family does, or should, incorporate! This is a good book that just makes me stop and think (maybe creates a slight feeling of inadequacy, guilt and stress!) These people sound like they have the patience of JOB! All I can say is, my best is no where near theirs, so the Lord will have a much greater difference to make up! That is probably why I only had 4 kids instead of 9. "

    " some good ideas for things to talk about with your child about values, but I'm not interested in developing a twelve month program for my child. Aimed more for the large Christian family set. "

    " Like most parenting books, this has some things that are compatible with our approach, and some things that aren't. I don't think I'd make any major changes to my parenting because of it, but there are a couple ideas I'll use. "

    " The best parenting book I've read yet. The authors (husband and wife) suggest 12 values to teach your children that will bring happiness to their lives. Great tools and information! I'm following my friends idea (thanks, Rachelle) by planning next years FHE's around one value each month. "

    " This book is a manual, I won't be finished for a while. I'm using it to teach values lessons to my young children and then we reinforce the values during the month (honesty, courage, responsibility, self mastery). So far so good - we are not perfect but ! "
