We Choose Virtues Review by Sprouting Tadpoles

I think one of the hardest parts of homeschooling is the character training you do with your kids. I have tried several different programs and they are either way too detailed or too childish to include my older boys. So we always dropped them with no hopes of finding anything worth while. Then I got the opportuity to do a review of the We Choose Virtues Parenting Cards. After using these cards for the last few weeks, I can honestly say that I have now, finally, found a program that works for us and can include both my younger boys and older boys. These cards are just awesome! I can’t think of a better word to say here. I was so excited when they arrived and when I opened the cards and looked at them, I was in awe.

We Choose Virtues Parenting Cards

These cards are so vibrant and sturdy, they are just inspiring when you look at them. They are large, colorful and include one virtue per card. The front has a picture of a kid from VirtueVille with a character trait and a catchphrase of a positive action. This is followed by the negative form of the catchphrase to show attitudes and actions that are hurtful or wrong and need to be changed along with a scripture reference. The back of each card contains Teachable Moments, a User Challenge, a story about the kid from VirtueVille that is pictured on the front of the card and other activities to reinforce the character trait.

The 12 virtues covered are: 

I am Diligent

I am Kind

I am Helpful

I am Obedient

I am Forgiving

I am Perseverant

I am Gentle

I am Patient

I am Self-Controlled

I am Content

I am Honest

I am Attentive

We Choose Virtues offers several products to go along with the Parenting Cards that help reinforce these character traits. They offer teaching cards, flash cards, posters, awards and sticker charts and several downloadable items such as a Teachers Guide, a Bible Reference, Coloring Pages, Character Assessment Chart and much more!

The Parenting Cards from We Choose Virtues are a simple and fun way to teach character to your kids. I keep our card inside a sheet protector on our Morning Time Board and we go over it along with our calendar, weather, clock and temperature. It takes us about 10 minutes to review and then we reference the character trait throughout the day (some days more than others!). There are a lot of examples and ideas to use on the cards and in the Teacher Handbook. My boys are starting to learn what it means to have good character and they are actually becoming more pleasent to be around! So the best thing about these cards is that they actually work! and because they are simple and entertaining to use, we look forward to seeing the cards each day. I am thinking of getting the Flash Cards or Clue Cards because I like the idea of pulling them out when we need them throughout the day instead of pulling out the Parenting Card multiple times.

You can see the actual size of the cards here. I placed 2 of them next to an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper so you can see that they are each half the size of a piece of paper.
