Children are delightful. Until you have two or more in the same room.
Oh, the bickering! The poking, jabbing, criticizing, whining, yelling, bossing around, crying, give-me-that-back and no-I-had-it-first shrieking I hear from my children on a daily (maybe hourly?) basis. Or at least I used to. Until I decided enough is enough—and I did something about it.
Introducing the solution to all that bickering—Let’s All Get Along: How to Live in Harmony with Siblings. This new family Bible study is written for kids (and parents) of all ages who struggle to show love to their brothers and sisters the way God intended. Which, let’s be real, includes nearly every child in the universe who has siblings.
However, just because squabbling is common doesn’t mean it’s okay. Let’s All Get Along explains why getting along is a much wiser choice—and how to do it.
Let’s All Get Along is an easy printable download that includes six lessons:
- Family Is Special
- What Does It Mean to Love My Siblings?
- Why Should I Love My Siblings?
- How Do I Get Along with My Siblings?
- Overcoming Obstacles to Getting Along
- Have a P.A.R.T.Y. (Ideas for applying what you’ve learned)
- PLUS a special section of tips for parents.
Let’s All Get Along is based on biblical truths and encouragement, shared in a way that kids can understand. Each lesson includes related Bible verses, conversation starters for the family to discuss, definitions of key “big words,” and recommended Scripture passages to read if you’re interested in further study. Plus each lesson offers a suggested activity for siblings to apply what they’ve learned. It’s everything you want your kids to know about why and how to get along—all in one tidy package designed to make learning FUN and effective.
I’ll be honest. I thought my kids knew this stuff. I mean, they do live with me day after day, right? I’m the wise Bible teaching mom, the one who preaches God’s love all across the Internet and in my own home. Yet when I sat down with them to test these six lessons, they were shocked at some of the Bible’s basic instructions for loving your brothers and sisters. Seriously? These truths were a surprise to them? How could they not know this already? Where did I go wrong?!
I didn’t. I’m a mom, just like you, doing my best to instill God’s love into my kids. And I’ve discovered sometimes it helps to have a guide.
That’s exactly what Let’s All Get Along is—a helpful guide of six lessons that you can download, print and explore as a family at your own pace. You can do one lesson a week or one lesson a day—whatever works best in your family schedule. But no matter when or how, I encourage you to make the time to teach these truths to your kids. God has so much more for us than everyday squabbling and bickering, and we don’t have to be stuck in the rut of not getting along. Our homes are the first place where we all learn to love and accept one another as Jesus loves us. Let’s be intentional about doing it well.
