Love At Home
 
By Lara Goold
 
Materials needed:
Scriptures, wedding picture, current family picture
Purpose:
To help family members to find better solutions to solving problems than arguing, yelling, disobeying, orsaying mean things and by so doing, making our homes happy places that are filled with love.
Scriptures:
 
Mosiah 4:14
 
Opening song and prayer:
 A Happy Family
”, Children’s Songbook 
, page 198
Note to Parents:
In order to keep a spirit of love during this lesson, it is important not to hold up specific children fornegative examples. This will not foster the spirit of love this lesson is meant to enhance, and is likely tocreate resentment and defensiveness. Speak vaguely about specific issues you are having in your homeand focus more on recognizing positive ways to deal with conflict and frustrations.
Lesson:
 
Show picture of Mary and Jesus as a child:
First emphasize to them that Jesus was once a child likethem and although he was perfect he probably liked to run and play like they do and even faced many of the same temptations that they face, so Heavenly Father blessed him with a family (Mary and Joseph) tolove, teach, and take care of him.
Show picture from your wedding and ask:
Do you know how many years ago we got married? Do youknow what temple this was? Do you know why we got married in the temple?Very briefly talk of how you loved each other so much that you wanted to make sure your family could betogether forever. Even though none of them were born yet, you knew you wanted them to be a partof your forever family someday.
Song:
Sing,
Families Can Be Together Forever 
,” Hymns
, page 300
Show current family picture:
Talk about how happy you were when you found out that each one of themwas coming to join your family and how grateful you are that you have a forever family.
 Ask (while still showing picture):
Do you think that Heavenly Father wants us to be grumpy and mean toeach other? Of course not. Heavenly Father wants our homes to be places where we feellove and can grow and learn together, but in order to make this happen we all have to work to do our part.Explain how sad it makes you (and Heavenly Father) when people are fighting or arguing with each otherand that together everyone can work to make your home a happier place.
 Role Play:
Tell them that we are going to practice finding positive solutions to frustrating experiences
we may face. There’s no exactly right way to do it, but the point is that you do not yell,
disobey, tear down, or say mean things. We want to do the thing that will best help our home to be a happy, peaceful place.
 
Take turns picking a slip listed with a negative situation and find a happy solution to the problem.
Reinforce
this experience during the week, by trying to intercept pe
ople as they’re beginning to get
frustrated and point out the different choices they face at that moment. Remind them of this activity.

Activities:
 
 Do We Live At Your House” (fruits and vegetables)
:
Take turns pulling a fruit or vegetable out of thebasket and read the descriptions of behavior that each possesses. Take this opportunity to discuss whetherit is exhibiting a good or bad behavior and if it is bad, how it could change the behavior to make theirhome a happier place.
 
Enrichment/Challenge:
 
Give someone a “heart attack” 
:
Let mom start this game by doing something nice for someone
anonymously and when it’s completed leave them the “heart attack”. Whomever receives the heart attack 
takes the next turn secretly doing something nice for someone else and quietly passing on the heart attack and so it passes on. Encourage the family to make sure everyone in the family gets a turn during the week and see the joy that comes from giving quiet acts of love. (Note: From personal experience, I suggestthat mom or dad keep tabs on the heart through the week and give encouragement and ideas to
whomever’s turn it is).
General Authority Quotes:
Cut them out, mount them onto fancy paper, and hang them up around yourhome to help you remember to look for positive solutions to frustrations you may be facing.
 Awards for Positive Behavior:
(Sample awards below)
Using the fruits and vegetables from the “
 Do We Live At Your House?
activity that exhibit positive behaviors, use it as an opportunity to focus in onpositive behaviors in your children. Pay attention to the positive strives they make and give them awardsgenerously. I recommend having them hang them on their door or wall for extra reinforcement. In ourfamily we made a goal of reaching a certain number of goals as a family by the end of the week and thenwe
d all participate in a fun activity together. We didn
t want it to become an individual competition.Make more copies of specific awards (or make your own), if necessary. The purpose is to focus on andreward their positive behaviors.
Closing song and prayer:
 Love is Spoken Here
