Toddlers: The way you talk to your child can be an opportunity to bring honor to Christ. As you interact, continually give Christ the praise. Praise Him for your child’s strong legs, smart mind, unique personality, quick feet, adorable hands…everything!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Talk with your child about what it means to be a leader (or salt!).

Then play Follow the Leader with them!
