    Family Home Evening Ideas

    • “‘Behold Your Little Ones,’” page 2: Discuss specific ways in which you as parents can follow President Hinckley’s counsel and treat your children with greater patience, understanding, and love. As a family, set specific goals to improve your relationships.

    • “Do What Is Right,” page 10: Read or tell the story of Elder Scott’s experience with Admiral Rickover. Ask family members for examples from their own lives of situations in which doing the right thing might be difficult. Discuss what it means to “do what is right; let the consequence follow.”

    • “Robby’s New Words,” page F6: Talk about anger and its consequences. As a family, think up alternate phrases, such as “How exasperating!” that you might use instead of saying angry words. Challenge family members to use these new words instead of hurtful, angry words.
