Tonight's family night lesson came straight out of the FHE Resource Manual - "Avoiding Putting Children in Corners" - although we did tweak it a bit because I was afraid reading it straight through would be a bit boring. And I think we were successful. First we had a little action with "killer whale" trying to capture and eat "happy feet penguin" in their small ocean (the piano bench).
We also turned the examples given in the manual into little role plays, and they were acted out quite realistically. As mentioned before, we're slowly going through the section in the manual titled "Making Your Family Home Evenings Successful." We figured these contained good skills for our children to learn before they became parents. I'm glad we're reviewing these principles as well. Family Home Evening really is a lot of fun, no matter what you do!
