How to Talk to Children About God

"How do I talk to my child about...?" This is not an uncommon question among parents as well as teachers and catechists. Abstract concepts, hard-to-broach subjects, and sensitive issues all require a particular kind of language that gives a child enough information without being overly complex or confusing. The same is true for aspects of our faith. How do we talk to children about the great big concept of God or about the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus? How do we explain the gestures, symbols, and ritual of the Mass or approach issues of morality and making sound choices?

This series of booklets provides parents as well as teachers and catechists with a range of questions about these topics. Each one offers terminology relatable to a young child's experience as well as family activities to stimulate further conversation and comprehension. In sharing these responses, you are likely to find yourself more capable of talking to your child about these and other topics of faith and practice.

In this booklet, Allie Johnston offers great suggestions for talking to children about God—God’s goodness, God as Creator, how we understand the Blessed Trinity, God the storyteller, God the listener, the God who forgives, and the Good Shepherd. Excellent family activities and short prayers to stimulate further conversation and comprehension are also included.
