Our 6 year old has recently reminded me that as parents, we must consistantly train our children. During our opening songs in church on Sunday, she looked up at me and asked "What are we having for lunch?". I reminded her that we are singing and we'd talk about it later. She was fine with that answer. Then later~~during the congregational prayer(!)~~she gets up in my ear and says "Oh, now I get it! Everyone in Mandie is the same in the first and second movie!!". (We had spent the previous 2 Friday nights watching the Mandie Movies~~Which are great family movies by the way!!) She really liked the Mandie movies and apparently her mind had wandered during the prayer to the movies!
As parents, our job of training sometimes seems like it never ends. Kids need many reminders as they grow. But as I see our older children grow, I see the fruit of our efforts. It is all worth it~~even when they talk about movies during prayer!!
Have a great day!
