What is my child learning this month?

During session five, we focused on handling stress by keeping Christ at the center of our lives.  We discussed how to handle stress in a healthy manner through activity, talking, prayer, meditation, and faith as the center of their lives.  


 

Bringing the Session Home

The article ends with the following:

Believing “is walking with Jesus. It’s a journey that lasts a lifetime,” Pope Francis told the catechumens. “Obviously, in this journey there will be moments when we feel tired and confused. However, faith gives us the certainty of the constant presence of Jesus in every situation, including the most painful and difficult to understand.”

  • Take a moment to share with your child a time in your own life where you felt "tired and confused" but where "faith gave you the certainty of the constant presence of Jesus in every situation."

  • Share with your child how you felt during the time of trouble and confusion and how you knew that Jesus was there helping you throughout the experience.

  • Ask your child to share with you a similar experience they have had in their own lives.

  • Discuss with your child how Jesus is with them in their experiences in life and how He is waiting to help them when they are 'tired and confused'.
