Faith practices -- Welcome hard questions

It’s OK to not have answers to big questions, to say, “I don’t know – let’s try to find the answer together,” and then turn to a pastor, resources or friends to help you unpack challenging topics. After all, parents are on a spiritual journey of growth, too, and it’s great for kids to see you learning alongside them. For preschoolers, answer questions with one in return: “What do you think?” This will encourage them to lean on their spirituality and prior learning to draw conclusions, discover other topics they wonder about and generate further conversation.
