Harmony

Deputize your kids as “discord detectives,” take your cue from harmonious relationships in nature, and win a three-legged race by cooperating.

Choose from these and over a dozen more ideas to help your children:

  • resolve disputes cooperatively
  • be quick to forgive
  • escape selfishness and show concern for others.

This lesson also helps curb teasing, bickering, provoking others, jealously and reacting with inappropriate actions or harsh words.
