Self-control

Build a fort, play the giggle game, or shake a pop bottle into a volcano of fizz. Who would have thought learning self-control could be so much fun?

Review these ideas, plus plenty more, to create lessons that help kids:

  • control negative impulses, in dependence on the Holy Spirit
  • think through consequences before speaking or acting
  • walk away from troublemakers.

This lesson is also helpful for children who tend to overreact, have difficulty managing anger and lash out by shouting, hitting or biting.
