We Choose Virtues: Review & Giveaway!

Today, I’m excited to tell you about a great character-training product for children. We Choose Virtues offers some great tools for parents, homeschoolers, teachers, churches and Sunday Schools, etc.

(They are having a great sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and you can get 30% off your entire purchase!  Use code Friday30 and Monday30 respectively)

I received the family kit to try out with my kiddos. (This kit is usually $69.99, but with the sale today and Monday, you can get it for $48.99!).

This kit includes:

  •  The Kids Virtue Poster-This is great!  It’s the perfect size for just hanging up on the wall to refer to! It includes the basics about each virtue, including the am/not statements.
  • The Three Rules PosterI love this! It’s great for younger children who aren’t readers. This poster is a great visual reminder for kids.  We refer to it often, and since the “rules” are short and sweet, they are easily remembered even for my 3 and 5 year old.
  •  13 Parenting Cards– (They are regularly $34.99, so less than $25 if you buy during the sale).  These cards are fabulous!  The front has the colorful cartoon representation of the virtue, along with the am/not statements and a verse (you can get them without verses as well).  The back is full of ideas for teaching these:  Each one has a “user challenge,”  a brief description/definition of the virtue, a sample apology for when the virtue is not followed, and a list of teachable moments for that virtue. There is also a card with some great ideas for teaching and demonstrations to help your child learn (and implement!) these virtues.
  •  12 Virtue Flash CardsIf you are interested in the program, but tight on cash (like we are!), these are a great way to get started. They are affordably priced at $14.99), and include everything you need for learning the virtues. The front of the card includes the virtue, along with a (super cute) colorful cartoon representation of it. The back of the card includes the am/not statements, along with a verse if you choose that option.  They also come with an idea card with 3 different games you can play with the flash cards. These cards are a perfect size for use with our morning board (I really need to share that here soon!).

I have some great stuff for you guys as well.  First of all, they are having a great sale, and you can receive 30% off your ENTIRE shopping cart!  The sale is good Black Friday (use code: Friday30) and Cyber Monday (use code: Monday30).

Finally, Heather has generously allowed me to offer up a set of the Virtue Flash Cards!  The cards are one of my favorite products because they are very affordable (Regularly $14.99, $10.49 if you purchase today or Monday), and they include all the information you need to get started.

    We model what we preach. And now that he is older, we take our son’s correction when he sees something we shouldn’t have done, or said. It’s hard to be corrected, but necessary.

  2. Julie says

    We discuss proper responses to each situation and highlight Godly character in the Bible stories we read, but I’d REALLY love We Choose Virtues to have a more structured and delightful format.

  3. says

    We also talk about the correct response and have them model it both in the situation and when there isn’t a conflict. We also make sure to praise them when we see them acting with godly character without being prompted.

  4. says

    This sounds like a great program! We do our best to model virtue, and we always confess when we’ve messed up – both to God and our kids, and encourage them to do the same. Then, we talk about what we can do better next time!

I love to hear your feedback and value your thoughts! All I ask is that we remain respectful and civil, even when we disagree. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate you!

Thank you for joining in the discussion!
