What's More Important   Reprinted by Permission
Explain to the child that you are going to say two different things and he is to choose which one is more important.
•“What’s more important, playing with the dog or feeding him?”
•“What’s more important, getting what you want or making your mommy smile?”
•“What’s more important, eating ice cream or eating a good dinner?”
To end the game say, “But what’s the most important thing of all?” Jesus!

Daily Choices   Adapted from Unknown Source
Discuss choices that we face every day:
Food to eat:  cookie vs fruit, potato chip vs carrot stick
Words we say:  loving vs mean, praise vs hurt
Activities:  pick up toys or leave them out, come when Mommy says come or ignore her request
