We asked moms why they needed the Keep Quiet Challenge for Kids. We had hundreds of replies and they all sang the same tune – struggles with grumbling, lying, talking back, begging…
“I can foresee this study being a game changer for our whole family.”

– Heather, North Carolina
“My children let me know just how much they want to be in charge by talking back frequently, sometimes lying, and also begging. This study would be a great way for us to learn to tame our tongues together and bring more peace to our home.”

If you are looking for lasting change in your family, the original version of the Keep Quiet Challenge was written just for women. Several of the Challenges are the same in each study, such as Tame Your Tone of Voice, Think Before You Speak, and Avoid Being Negative, whereas the Kids version has a few Challenges that are specific to them such as Don’t Talk Back, Don’t Tell Lies, and Stop Whining.

Someone has just hurt your feelings with something they said. You want to say something hurtful back. What do you do, and what happens next?
You are at the store when you see the prettiest or nicest ____ (you nil in the blank) that you’ve ever seen. You ask your mom or dad if you con have it, and they say no. How do you respond?
