homeschool village - manners!



Check out all the wonderful ideas and resources over at the homeschool village.

What practical teaching methods/exercises are you using to teach etiquette and manners to your children?


As of right now, I am using Behavior Boosters. The author of these books came to my MOPS group and did a workshop with us and I loved her ideas for teaching/motivating children to behave in a positive way. All of her ideas are fun and simple and are based on a scripture.

Here are 3 examples of ones that we have done in our home and have helped my children.

encourage one another


"Encourage one another and build each other up".
1 Thessalonians 5:11a

eggs-actly


"Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord."
Colossians 3:20

taste bud-dy


"Keep your tongue from evil."
Psalm 34:13a
