Parenting Insights

June 29, 2010

Never underestimate the power of family faith conversations. They’re critical for childrens’ spiritual development. So often, though, we feel ill-equipped to openly discuss matters of faith. Remember the handy acronym ALOT to help you tackle any topic from a faith-based perspective.

• Ask—Find out how your child feels about the situation or topic.

• Listen—Listen actively, without interrupting, while your child responds.

• Open—Open your heart—and your Bible, if you need to.

• Talk—Talk about your thoughts and feelings on the subject—and how they’re shaped by God’s Word. Then also talk to God in prayer about the issue.
