This month we are studying the character trait of loyalty. We use Character First as the core for our understanding of this trait, though I often tweak things.
This month I’ve tweaked the definition.
Character First: Using difficult times to demonstrate my commitment to those I serve.
Me: Being committed even in hard times
though my daughter’s friend saw it as "always being ready to serve" which is good too.
Our lessons are focused around being loyal to God, family, and friends though we will also touch on being loyal to yourself (not swayed by peer pressure) and being loyal to your country.
Joshua has started a new blog and his first post is a review on the movie "Bolt". Reading his review, he sees this movie as all about loyalty! Which it is (though I would have missed it had it not been for his review – sometimes you get caught up in the story and don’t see the teaching opportunities.) I like to be able to add stories, both from books and movies, that show a character trait in action (or sometimes it is helpful to see it missing in action too).
