I’m a firm believer in building character through homeschooling because our children need to know that their character matters. Movies are a great resource to use with children as part of their education. You can combine a family movie night with character building by choosing movies that build character.

After becoming child led homeschoolers I found that not all learning has to happen with textbooks. When I finally accepted that my children could learn through quality literature, movies, documentaries, audiobooks and more, our homeschooling became more relaxed and my children began loving to learn again!

Movies are a wonderful resource to use with your regular homeschool studies, many movies are based on books, which makes teaching your children how to compare and contrast a lot of fun. 

Getting started using movies to help build character in your kids isn’t hard, in fact, I’ve completed the first step for you!  

I’ve put together a list of over 100 movies that build character that will give children the opportunity to learn from the lives of others through movies. Both true and fictional stories can bring character qualities to life in ways that children can see, recognize and understand.

Make family movie night a fun evening that is educational as well! Build character as you spend time together as a family.
