Conversations help us build connections with our kids. Watch this video as a family, then start talking.
Convo Starter 1:
Paco and Mae had fun daring each other to eat crazy things in the meat shop! Here’s a dare for you: Would you rather...eat a bunch of bacon covered in mustard...or a cheese burger covered in chocolate frosting? Now make up some “Would You Rather’s” of your own!
Convo Starter 2:
Worship is when you make something the most important thing. What are some things that you give lots of time and energy to? Do they ever get in the way of worshiping Jesus?
Convo Starter 3:
Mae gave some ideas on how to worship God which include: Talking to Him, singing, and serving our friends and family. What is your favorite way to worship?
Check out Romans 12:1 and think about how you can live your life as a way to worship God. As a family, choose a specific way you’ll worship God this week.
Use these basics as you start convos with your family:
- Be great listeners. Put your screen down and look your kids in the eye. Silence your phone. Encourage them for sharing. Watch what your face is communicating.
- Be patient. Give your kid time to respond. Silence is okay. It may take some time for them to communicate their thoughts. Give them space to process.
- Be curious. The point is to have conversations with your kids, not to answer every question listed. If they drift to another topic - go with them. Keep talking. Keep asking questions. Keep listening.
