Scared of the dark: tell stories to God

Featured Tools:

5 Jul 2017
If your child is very imaginative, sometimes that means that their minds create very vivid scary stories. Here is a way to empower your children to take control of that imagination in a way that brings God-connection and peace.

Stories are very powerful in the minds of our children, and when they have a scary one running in their head it can be hard to fight. Sometimes it gets there from a scary television programme, movie, or news story. Sometimes it comes purely from their imagination, but our children can sometimes feel very helpless to change them. One way we can equip them is to restore the power of shaping their own stories.
