Telling The Truth. Holding Our Tongues.
These are things that children (as well as adults) struggle with.
Teaching our children about the importance of telling the truth takes repeated and consistent modeling and effort, doesn't it? Teaching them to hold their tongues might even be harder - at least I think it is harder because I sometimes have a VERY difficult time holding my tongue.
This month on the Tommy Nelson blog the focus is all about honesty. Last week I shared the ways we plant seeds of honesty in our home through scripture memorization.
One of the things I love about being a Tommy Nelson Mommy is the amazing resources we receive each month. This month we have been watching another sweet Hermie movie: I Will Tell The Truth and Be Careful What I Say.

About the DVD
This is a 90 minute fully animated movie - with 2 segments. It is geared for ages 4-7, but my 8 year old giggled the whole way through.
(We have a long standing relationship with Hermie, so even my 11 year old sat down for a bit because she fondly remembers Hermie from when she was much younger!)
Each segment emphasizes the importance of telling the truth and saying I'm sorry. Most importantly, the characters emphasize that God loves for us to choose our words carefully.
My husband and son watched the movie together and had a lot of good discussions afterwards. The Hermie videos are always good jumping off points for us to discuss hard subjects with our kids.
Hermie and Friends
My kids have always loved Hermie.
There are many reader books and DVDs that all help our little ones grow in their faith. (Remember Beehaving is Best?)
