Your Child’s Phase
AS KIDS AT THIS AGE CONTINUE TO GROW AND LEARN, THEY EVALUATE THEIR WORLD. THERE ARE TWO QUESTIONS THAT THEY WILL CONTINUALLY ASK ONE, IS THIS FAIR, AND TWO, WHO IS THE BEST? LIFE GETS MORE COMPETITIVE. AS THEY EVALUATE THEIR WORLD, IT’S GOOD TO REMIND THEM THEY DID THEIR BEST AND THAT YOU LOVE THEM NO MATTER THE SCORE.
During your child’s school year, Victory Family Church will go in-depth in February on a biblical principle during services. This isn’t the only time they will learn about this topic. We are just emphasizing the principle during this period. The subject is determined based on their age, stage of development, and what’s culturally and socially relevant.
By the second grade, kids can learn about and understand water baptism. Cognitively, they can understand the symbolism. The water doesn’t make you clean or new, but they can understand the direct parallel between water baptism and how it shows others you are on God’s team. It is an outward declaration of an inward choice. They know they are saved and want to tell everyone they want to follow in Jesus’ footsteps.
We want to walk alongside you with your students as they navigate their lives. These are resources and tools you can use with them!
Your kids are no strangers to technology. They are using it for games, entertainment, and to learn. However, there are times we need to reevaluate, set some parameters, and create some updated expectations for technology.
