TALKING TO KIDS ABOUT GOD
When is a good time for this conversation? How do you approach it? Do we wait for kids to bring up the subject or should we be proactive about it? How important is it that you tell your kids your own beliefs about God? How important is it that you steer your children off their paths and onto yours? If there are two parents in the home, what if they don’t see things eye to eye?
TCC member Stan Brimberg has been thinking about these questions for a quite awhile. He’ll share his thoughts and engage the audience in an exploration of their ideas and approaches to these often vexing matters.
Stan is a writer and middle school educator.
