Children can begin to appreciate playing side by side with children who may speak a different language or have a different culture. Invite a family from another culture over for a meal. Correspond with a missionary family. Read books and listen to music with other cultures. Help your child see people as God sees them— all His children.

FAMILY TALK:  

Working together is a GREAT way to encourage children to tackle their jobs with enthusiasm. Demonstrating how to help one another is a powerful teaching tool. Affirming a “job well done” goes a long way to encourage a child to do their best work.

Resist the temptation to compare the quality of work of two or more family members. Instead, encourage each individual to do the best they can do. Allow reasonable amounts of time for jobs to be completed. Remind family members that doing the best they can do is part of making right choices. God is pleased when we make right choices and help others.

FAMILY TALK …

Children often cannot wait to tell something that excites them. When we have good news, we want to share it! As followers of Jesus, we have very good news. The good news of God sending His Son, Jesus, to help us is the best news ever! Jesus said to His followers, “Go everywhere in the world. Tell the good news to everyone” (Mark 16:15).

Begin in your own home to tell this good news. Your children will learn about Jesus from example. Model an excitement about telling others the exciting story of Jesus!

FAMILY TALK
As children learn about Jesus’ great power– His power to heal the sick, raise the dead, and walk on water– they may question why God doesn’t seem to be answering their own family prayers for people they know.

Guide your children to understand God’s answers to prayer. God will answer

FAMILY TALK 
 
How does your family celebrate birthdays or holidays? What other occasions do you celebrate together? Promotions? Good grades? Do you prepare favorite meals? Do you call or text family members when you have good news to share?

Jesus is alive! What a reason to celebrate. Make this a week of celebration. Share your favorite Bible stories of Jesus’ time on earth. Choose a praise song to sing to Jesus each day. Prepare a family letter to send to friends or relatives telling what you did on Resurrection Sunday. Together, thank God that Jesus is alive! Help your child understand that every day can be a day of celebration because Jesus lives and loves us more than we can ever imagine.

As children learn about Jesus’ great power– His power to heal the sick, raise the dead, and walk on water– they may question why God doesn’t seem to be answering their own family prayers for people they know.

Guide your children to understand God’s answers to prayer. God will answer no if He knows that is the best answer for us. He will answer yes if our prayer request is what’s best for us. Sometimes God answers wait in order that His answer to our prayers will be at the best time.

Teach your child that God knows everything about us. He loves us. He wants the very best for us. Believing and trusting God for the very best in our lives requires practice and patience. God may answer yes, no, or wait. But He always answers!

One of God’s greatest gifts is children. E.T. Sullivan writes, “When God wants great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, He goes about it in a very unusual way. He does not stir up His earthquakes or send forth His thunderbolts. Instead, He has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure parents. And then God puts the idea into the parents’ hearts, and they put the idea into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies!

God wants to do great things through parents like you! Thank Him today for the gift of your child.

Wearing the parental hat is not always easy. We are God’s representatives to teach His ways to our children. Though the task is great, God promises to give us the strength, wisdom and assistance we need.

How did you learn to talk? How did you learn to make your bed? Who taught you how to ride a bike? The answer to most of these questions, and others like them, are your parents or other caregivers. You, in turn, are teaching your children and they will teach their children.

There are no lessons in life more important than those dealing with God and Jesus. You are your child’s greatest teacher. Set aside a basket of laundry and read a Bible story picture book to your child. Shut down the computer screen and teach your child a favorite Bible verse.

Teaching children to obey is an important part of the parenting process. Children need to learn at an early age the importance of being obedient. They need to know that sometimes being obedient can be difficult, especially when friends and other people around them are not obeying. Invest time in discussing the rules for your home. When possible, encourage children to be a part of the process of establishing family rules. Then be consistent in enforcing the rules. Reward a child with encouragement and affirmation when rules are obeyed and followed. Follow up any disobedience with the appropriate consequence. Remember that a commitment to obey God’s rules at home, at school, and throughout his life.

Developing a habit of demonstrating kind acts and using kind words is an important part of the growth process for children. In order for this growth to take place, kindness must be modeled in the home. In our fast-paced world, it is easy to overlook even simple acts and words of kindness. Kindness requires an investment of time and energy. Take advantage of opportunities to demonstrate kindness this week. Say please and thank you. Serve someone an unexpected drink of hot chocolate. Give a compliment. The investment of your time and energy will benefit your family for years to come. Continue to focus on kindness until it becomes a regular part of home activities.

They may think that having a nickel is worth more than a dime because it is bigger. At an early age, you can help your child develop wise money habits that please God. Purchase three colorful envelopes. Label the envelopes: God’s money, savings, my money. Each week, give your child a small allowance. Show your child how to put 10 percent in the envelope marked God’s Money. Do this first. Then put 40 percent in the savings envelope and 50 percent in the My Money envelope.

Today your child learned about the importance of praying to God. You can help your child apply this lesson. Talk with your child about the different kinds of prayers we offer to God: We praise God. We thank God for what He does. We tell God we are sorry when we make wrong choices. We ask God for His help. While God knows everything, He desires to hear from His children. God wants His children to recognize their needs and acknowledge their dependence on Him. As you pray with your child, demonstrate the different ways to pray. Allow your child to hear you praying, just as Jesus’ followers heard Him pray.

Make up and learn a simple rhyme about Jesus’ birth. Practice showing the pictures and saying the rhyme to one another. Next, make a list of some safe people children can talk to about Jesus. Think of people who need to know about Jesus. Then like the shepherds, tell what you have seen and heard!

Did they question or complain? How did they feel when the walls of Jericho fell after those seven long days of wearisome marching?

Parenting can be a tough battleground. Often we must march into the battle without understanding God’s direction. But God has promised that He will not give us more than we can handle. Demonstrate throughout your day how you are a faithful follower of Jesus. The daily trudge of battle is worth it when those little feet  march in step with you, following God’s truths.

Every child needs a place where they can feel safe and secure, both physically and emotionally. Children must have their daily physical needs met, which includes food, shelter, and clothing.

Be a reflection of God’s love in creating a beautiful and fruitful relationship with your little one, for we were all made in the image of God, Genesis 1:26.
