Ok, I need some help. My oldest is going to a Catholic preschool. I have no problem with him learning about Christianity even though we are not practicing Christians. Then again I go to Liberty University so yeah, lol. Anyways, my MIL LOVES to send us religious books, which we do not mind. However, here is where my problem comes. The books seem bias to me. They leave out parts to make it seem like the story is more good than it really is. Some of the stories and books are just wrong (completely taken verses out of context). This is where I get upset. I get frustrated at the books. I want my sons to learn the truth which means learning the whole story, not just parts. Am I expecting too much since he is only 4 (well will be 4 in June)? Do I just need to get over it and try to be unbias? Or should I tell him the real story? HELP!Answer Question

Most Christian children's books leave out details. They are more of an intro. A 4 year old can't really grasp the concept of God and religion. If you want to fill in the gaps the feel free to. It's your kid so educate him however you want. But being so young he will probably enjoy the kiddie version and will be uninterested in the full version.

Read the books to your son and then talk about what you question about the stories. Books are a wonderful way to begin discussions with our kids. Also go to the library there may have additional books to add to what your MIL is giving him.
