Animals teach personality traits and how to respect individuals for who they are. The four animals in this story came out of the personality section we teach in our "Love Is a Decision" seminars, based on our book The Two Sides of Love. Not only do we want children to begin to learn the different personality characteristics, but it is also our deep desire to help parents begin to recognize and highly value even their very young children's unique, God-given bents. It was our good friend Chuck Swindoll who first pointed out to us how the familiar Proverb "Train up a child in the way he should go ..." should best be translated. The way it actually reads in Hebrew is "Train up a child according to his bent ...." We hope that by using four animals to describe the four basic personality types, we have helped you to see more clearly your child's "bent." And for you to help your child learn more about his own personality strengths, we've included a brief personality checklist for the two of you to do together. Limited picture descriptions present.
