This package comes with either small charts (8.5"x11," full-color, laminated), or large charts (16"x22," black & white, un-laminated). The small charts are more durable, and fit more easily on your walls, on the fridge, or in a notebook. The larger charts can be better for young children, or if you want to color them at home.
For a larger package containing Plants Grown Up, Polished Cornerstones, and the Put On Chart, see the Character Training Package.

I have purchased this package (black and white as well as the color charts (x2)) on a homeschool website and became hooked! I love having Scripture readily available as I try to train and discipline my children. That was always a problem for me. I never knew what to address, and even when I did, Scripture was never involved because I never knew where to look. So, when I happened upon Doorposts, it was an answer to prayer. I needed a starting point and some accountability checkpoints when trying to use the Bible to raise my children properly. There is always a scripture associated with a character trait or transgression, which points them to God and not to worldly legalism. Using "What does God say about..." instead of "Do what I say because...", is the better approach. They don't need to be able to read because they can understand the pictures. My only real problem is that most of the verses are in the KJV, so I sometimes have to reread the verse in the translation we use.
One other concern is that this is A LOT of information! I felt overwhelmed at first and didn't know where to begin. The Righteousness book is HUGE! I have finally come to understand that parenting takes a lot of preparation and studying on my behalf and being proactive rather than reactive. You should really study your Bible and the charts so that when certain things occur, you are ready to deal with it immediately. Even better, choose 1 or 2 topics a day to discuss with your children so they know what to expect.
I took it for granted that my kids knew the right thing to do instinctively, when in fact, the opposite is true. They have to be taught and trained diligently in the ways of the Lord and if we are ignorant, then we are neglecting our responsibilities as parents and exposing our children to harm. Thank you Doorposts for making it "easier" (haha! If such a thing exists!) to parent Biblically.
