“I sat down the oldest two (5 & 7) and went through this assessment line-by-line. (The three year-old joins in on all of the training as well – I just didn't complete the assessment for him.) I showed them how it lists each character trait, the positive and the negative behavior, and we chose a number from 1 to 10 that described how they expressed that trait. It was actually fun in a weird sort of way. They liked talking about their behavior and things they weren't so good at – who knew? Needless to say, the 5 year old boy was generally more optimistic about his behavior than I had seen put in action, and I would gently recall a couple of examples of situations to help him assess his behavior more accurately. Then came the fun part…. Mom had the kids assess her character! We talked about each item. For the first few, the kids were super-positive and gracious. Then when I said, “well, I think I need to work on this one” they realized they could be a little more critical. The next character traits were funny as they did EXACTLY what I did to them…. I would say, “well, I think I do all right on this one, maybe I will rank it an 8.” To which my 7 year old responded, “well, remember last week when you….” Ha! I was being held accountable! We decided we would all work together to acquire these traits, and after we learned all 12 we would re-assess ourselves to see how far we have come. It was a great way to start!”
