Are you about at your wits' end over the fighting, constant bickering, and all-around mean behavior your kids show toward each other?
Trust me. I've been there. All the best tricks and parenting books cannot solve the age-old problem of sibling rivalry. The only way to truly change it is to change the hearts of our kids through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
This digital 54-page sibling love Bible study will help you equip your children to truly love their siblings and grow their faith in the process. It's about time for some peace around your house, isn't it?
My Brother's Keeper is a 4-week in-depth Bible study on the subject of sibling relationships. We will explore the stories of 10 different siblings from the Bible, some with beautiful stories and some with ugly ones. Through the stories of these siblings and the pages of Scripture, your children will learn God's true purpose for siblings and families, the issues that siblings face, the responsibilities that they have as siblings, and practical tools for resolving the inevitable conflicts.
The primary age level is uniquely designed for ages 4-8. Each day, parents have a short lesson to read and discuss with the child. Then the child has a page to draw (or write) in response to what he/she has learned.
Most days contain one or two key passages to read together, as well as a key truth to discuss. (Parent discussion guide included.)
The junior age level is uniquely designed for ages 8-12. It is written for the child to do independently and then discuss with the family (discussion guide included).
There are 2-4 Scripture references to look up along with questions to answer. Some questions have lines to write and some have boxes so the child can choose to write or draw.
The youth age level is uniquely designed for ages 12+. Each day, teens have 4-8 verses to read, along with questions to answer. Our goal is to help them dig even deeper into God's Word and apply the truths to their lives in a practical way for the issues teens face.
Although this level is specifically targeted for teens, all three age levels tie together through daily central themes, discussion questions, and at least one verse each day. (Parent discussion guide included.)
When using as a family, each child should get his/her own copy on their age level. We recommend having kids ages 8 and up work alone while you work with younger kids. Strong readers should begin working on their own as soon as they are able, but I wouldn't recommend doing this before at least age 8.
Once each child has completed his/her lesson for the day, meet together as a family to discuss what you've learned. (Think good old fashioned Bible study style!) We've created a parent guide detailing the day's power truth, key verse, and some discussion questions to get you going.
Discussion is the best way to help your kids read the Bible for themselves and develop the kind of PERSONAL faith they need as they grow older. When you have to repeat what you've learned, it creates a deeper learning. Plus, when you do a Bible study as a whole group, kids tend to lean on each other instead of applying the knowledge themselves!
