As this is an uncertain time for parents it is also unsettling for children. Here is a lesson on anxiety for you do with your child as a worship time with your children on Sunday. It has a simple visual you can add to it to help your child see what it means to “cast your care on HIM”.
Some things that can be helpful for your child during this time:
- Share God’s words with them daily of HIS care and love for them
- Pray for others (taking the focus off ourselves)
- Exercise and playing outside
- LOTS of Hugs
- Your children are watching you and hearing your conversations/how are you reacting
Be encouraged parents, this is an overwhelming and scary time. A helpful passage of scripture for me has been Psalm 121. Read it today and know that God is here with us.
Lovingly in Christ,
Director of Children’s Ministry at GCC
