Children naturally have a lot of questions. Answer as truthfully as you can, adding details when they need them. Ask them what they think and find out what they already know. Too much information is overwhelming for little hearts that are already processing a lot. Vague answers may discourage children from asking further questions because they might not recognize you to be a good source of information.
If you are struggling with your child’s questions, offer to ask a counsellor or pastor and be sure to get back to them with an answer. It’s ok to say you don’t know right now and then find a way to look for the answer together. Praying together is a good way to start.
