I just thought i would add a post for christian parents to discuss the ins and outs of raising a family and the difficulties we sometimes face-for example - tv, christmas, certain games, music, etc.
Parenting is a tough enough job-then add to it the mix of trying to find the right balance of protecting your child from things that God would not want thier little ears or minds to see or know but at the same time not sheltering them so much that they hit school and are so nieve and curious they find out through other channels.
We could share ideas of how we teach our toddlers about Jesus through every day stuff-i often struggle with this one-he shoudl be a part of our everyday lives rather than an after thought at bed time when we do bible sotires and prayer time-what do you guys do on a daily basis to bring God into your childrens lives-also what age did you kids start to really understnad certain things like the true meaning of Christmas and Easter? how did you go about telling them?
Hope to hear from some fellow Jesus lovers!!
