Comments about the lesson
This was a great month for me to introduce the concept of being accountable, as far as my son’s “chores” and also for his own behavior. Taking responsibility for your own actions was a great way to discuss discipline and the benefits of being obedient to rules.
There was a lot of activities we enjoyed from this lesson and I was surprised which ones my son liked the most. I thought he’d really like the Reliable Racers game but he wasn’t really into it, and on the other hand he really enjoyed illustrating the pictures for Daily Activity #17 which I thought may have been too difficult for him to grasp. Kids never cease to amaze their parents, I guess! It’s good to remember that sometimes an activity is worth a try, even if at first you aren’t sure how your child will respond to it.
My son loved the “It’s Up To Me” song which is to the tune of “Farmer and the Dell.” I heard him singing it several times while playing which was cute.We enjoyed the Spiritual Treasure Box project for the prayer because we could follow along with the pictures as we sang the prayer.

My son was really interested in his responsibilities for Daily Activity #14 but didn’t want to draw them (he wanted me to do it). At first I really wanted him to draw them, since it was a poster about “his responsibilities” but then I realized that it was expecting too much. The point of the activity is actually to share some learning about the spiritual quality and not for him to do it “all himself.” We’re learning together, after all.
