Family night - the sequel

This week's family night:

A little more interactive, this week James decided to first recount the story of David and Goliath, and then show a short film clip about it. You see how we are trying to reach out in various methods of teaching/learning (audio and visual). He also included an interactive portion, where he talked with Colin about something difficult he had to master (learning to use the toilet). The message he was trying to convey was that when you have something hard to do, you can always pray and ask God to help you.

After using all three methods of relaying the lesson, James decided to check out how well the lesson had been received:

James: So Colin, what do you do when you've got something very hard you need to do?
Colin: Throw a rock.

At least he listened to the story :).

We were actually told at the daycare to ensure that we make it clear that that is NOT how we want them to handle conflict when we read that story, and to steer clear of telling it to the kids under 2 :).
