”Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.”
Today’s activity was simple. I took a couple of our pre-frozen cookie dough cookies and baked a few this morning. I then set them out and explained that we were going to practice self control all day by putting these in a prominent place but not eating them. At the end of the day, we enjoyed the cookies together. They did really well throughout the day. They were asking for a bit, but I said if they asked again then they wouldn’t have any. I think it took more of my self control than theirs to not touch those cookies all day.
