Persevering in tough circumstances

Serving others

Choose a challenging task and work on it as a family – perhaps you can help another family out.

Discussion point: Emphasize the satisfaction and reward of a job well done.

Enjoy being industrious as a family. When you are cleaning or working together, talk about how good it feels to work and get a big job done. You can work at your own home or choose to help another family where there is a need.

Emphasize that the reward of hard work is the feeling of satisfaction you get when it is all done. An ice cream cone can sweeten the experience as well and help celebrate the fact that you all persevered.
