Self discipline comes in many forms. As kids get older there are fun ways to measure these acquiring skills with fun and simple games. These games involve lots of listening and self control. Keeping games such as these as staples in your curriculum work well in assessing developing skills.

Hi Valerie! Often we don't think too much on how activities will plan effect areas of self control or social skills. I suppose this is why we started a blog on it. Thanks Valerie! We really appreciate you and your family!
