Isn’t it interesting that we don’t have to teach our children how to misbehave? Even the most docile children need to be trained to good habits and character traits. Patience is an important trait that we can help our children develop, and honestly, it’s one that I personally struggle with. (As I write this on a rainy Sunday afternoon, methinks it’s no coincidence that impatience was also mentioned in this morning’s Sunday school lesson. “It’s me, it’s me, oh Lord, standing in the need or prayer”!) 

Here are 7 ways to teach patience to your children. Perhaps we will pick up a tip or two to develop the skill in our own lives.
