Little Character Badges perfect for children between the ages of 3 and 5

Character Badges is on of the AWESOME resources that comes in the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle! I’m absolutely in love with this program. Theres actually two versions – Character Badges {5 and up} comes with the colorful printable badges and monthly charts for obedience, disobedience and consequences and flashcards with character qualities and easy-to-understand definitions. There is also Little Character Badges {3-5} comes with the colorful printable badges and monthly charts for obedience & disobedience. Both come with a VERY well-written and easy to follow manual including diagrams of each chart and tips and tricks.

Your child will start off with a blank obedience, disobedience and consequences {for the older age} charts.

Obedience Chart: In both the Character Badges and Little Character badges three checks in each good quality results in a badge they get to wear all day long. I don’t know about your kiddos but mine eat this up!  In both there is the ability for your little one to receive a higher badge as the day goes on {for example with Little Character Badges 3 checks or stickers gets a “Very Good” badge, 6 gets an “Outstanding” badge and 9 gets an “Exceptional” badge. I love this part of the Character Badge program, it really encourages children to work harder and really consider there actions…LOVE!! 

Disobedience/ Consequence Charts:  With each negative action your child will receive a check, with each check they receive a consequence, the more negative action the bigger the consequence {I love that because every family disciplines differently you decide the consequences} 

All the information you want and need to know:

A little about Character Badges | They were created because of a need saw in the creators own home! They needed consistency {don’t we all?} Life is busy. Life with children is often hectic busy, and when life gets hectic, things start to slip through the cracks. Consistency in child training can be one of the first things to go. Especially for families who have many little ones, it can be difficult to keep track of who has done what when and who has what reward or correction coming to them (whew!). The last thing you want to do is just resort to barking or spanking every time a child has gotten out of line (no matter the offense). Wouldn’t it be better for both you and your child to know exactly where they stand and to take some of the guesswork out of training them? This is where Character Badges can help.

Character Badges consists of three fantastic and colorful charts and a series of fun and colorful badges! They are designed to:

  • Present to both you and your child a visual representation of your child’s obedience / disobedience forthe month as well as the rewards / consequences associated with their behavior.
  • Encourage and motivate your child to perform good deeds throughout the month by rewarding them with a series of badges and the various rewards you attach to them.
  • Provide a way for you to tailor specific consequences to specific acts of disobedience (and keep it all organized) in the hopes of helping your child better understand why what they did was wrong.
  • Help you and your child know exactly where they stand regarding their behavior. A review of their chart at the end of the month will tell you and them what areas they are excelling in and what areas need work.
  • Help take the guesswork out of who has what coming to them (whether reward or correction). Character Badges can be especially useful to the parents of many children. Each child is different. Character Badges can help you to focus on specific areas that need attention in your child’s life.

Little Character Badges {3-5}

Think of Little Character Badges as a miniature version of Character Badges.  Little Character Badges are perfect for children between the ages of 3 and 5. The chart, badge, and consequence system has been simplified to make it easier for your little ones to receive the instruction they need. Little Character Badges is an excellent introduction to the Character Badges system and will help them transition to it when you feel they are ready. 

Little Character Badges consists of two  fantastic and colorful charts and a series of fun and colorful badges. That are designed to:

  • Present to both you and your child a visual representation of your child’s obedience / disobedience over the course of a week as well as the rewards / consequences associated with their behavior.
  • Encourage and motivate your child to perform good deeds throughout the month by rewarding them with a series of badges and the various rewards you attach to them.
  • Provide a way for you to tailor specific consequences to specific acts of disobedience (and keep it all organized) in the hopes of helping your child better understand why what they did was wrong.
  • Help you and your child know exactly where they stand regarding their behavior. A review of their chart at the end of the week will tell you and them what areas they are excelling in and what areas need work.
  • Help take the guesswork out of who has what coming to them (whether reward or correction). Little Character Badges can be especially useful to the parents of many children. Each child is different. Little Character Badges can help you to focus on specific areas that need attention in your child’s life.

Please note | “Character Badges and Little Character Badges are not intended to be a cure-all for disobedience in your children. We designed it to simply serve as an aid for families (like us) who wanted more consistency in the way they child-train. That said, the system requires time, attention, watchfulness, and, yes, consistency in order to bring about good results. With these things in place, we believe it can be a help and a blessing to your family.”  – Creators of Character Badges and Little Character Badges

Intentional Marriage | A 31 Day Devotional | The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle

Affiliate Links are used in this post. Thank you for supporting The Life in Bloom

One of the coolest perks about being an affiliate for the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is getting my hands on some of the book included early! Over the next few days I will be sharing some of my favorite ebooks and programs that are apart of the amazing bundle! Intentional Marriage: the art of loving your husband  {a 31 day devotional} is one of the fabulous books in the “Marriage” section of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle!

In the introduction Crystal says “the biggest threat to marriages in our modern world is neglect. When we stop trying, we start drifting apart.” I have to wholeheartedly agree, once you’ve been married for any length of time it starts becoming comfortable you get caught up in the busyness of life you start only thinking about yourself and sadly we often become thoughtless.Over the last 14 years my husband and I have strived to not allow the busyness of life to take control and pettiness of personal bad habits (in both my husband and myself) but the thing is life is busy and it’s easy to sink into that. Because it is so easy to get consumed by life you have to make every day intentional before you find yourself right in the middle of marriage in crisis. My husband and I have watched countless marriages fall apart because of more than just drifting apart but because they just stopped caring, they stopped being intentional in their marriages in their lives together. They had reached crisis and stopped wanting to be together. I think that it’s a sad reality that this is so very common in this current  world that were part of, but it is and we have to be proactive!

Let’s talk about intentional marriage | 31 day devotional! Crystal Brothers did an awesome job putting this together!!

There are 31 different topics covered in the devotional, including:

  • Cooking your husbands favorite food
  • Five things you love about your husband
  • Date night
  • Be his support
  • Speak only what is helpful assure him of your devotion
  • and more

Each day is put together in such a way that is very easily to accomplish a matter how busy you are. There are four parts to each day

For example Day 15 is “Thank God for him”

  1. A Bible verse Philippians 1:3  “I think my God in all my remembrance of you,”
  2. 2-4 paragraphs discussing what it means to “Thank God for him” What does this mean? How do we do it? Practical tip on how to accomplish said task.
  3. A daily challenge, for this particular day the challenge is “give thanks for your husband every time you think of him having an attitude of things will change your actions towards him”
  4. Finally there is a section of “Daily Challenge” reflection that Crystal has provided on each page. There are number of lines to write some reflection about “today’s challenge” for example you can answer questions like: did today’s challenge go today did it go better-than-expected? did today’s challenge go worse than expected? depending on each days particular challenge you will have different question to reflect on and respond to. If you are like me you will end up doing this section at the end of the day.

I really like the way this devotional is put together! There’s not too much, there’s not too little, it’s absolutely perfect! No matter how much time you have or don’t have, you can do this Devo! I found that no matter how many activities we have each day or how many things I have to do I always have the time I need to read each day, do the days challenge or prepare for it, and spend time praying for my husband. It has to be intentional so I recommend doing it first thing in the morning depending on your situation it might before work, before the kids get up, or like me when the kids are having breakfast. Set a time and stick to it {as best you can}

Besides the fact that this is just an altogether wonderful devotional I love what’s at the end of the book…awesome resources like:

  • 101 ways to bless your husband
  • 101+ free/cheap date night ideas
  • 101+ conversation starters

I like to add to each day the time to pray and write out a prayer for your husband. We are all different, were all going through different things, each of our husbands are going through different things. I would highly suggest taking the time to really pray for your husband!  Pray the things that he’s going through both big and small, any issues that you are having with each other, family, friends {ect.} and lastly, that God will help you be the wife that he has created you to be for your husband.

I hope you grab up the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and enjoy the Intentional Marriage Devotional as much as I did! As a reminder this bundle is a one time offer, once it’s gone, it’s gone!!!! There’s only 5 days left!

Keep an eye out tomorrow for more of My Favorite ebooks from the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle!
