  • I don't think you have to directly talk to them about daughter is 2 1/2 and we've been taking her to Sabbath School since she was 6 months old. :) she loves it...knows about Jesus, kneels when she prays, and prays for her food whenever she eats anything...on her own. I think they learn by seeing...but then again, it depends on their age also...I think that's wonderful!!

  • My son is going to be 3 in May. He knows who Jesus is and he prays on his own without being told.

  • my son loves going to church. my grandparents take him all the time and he usually comes home asking questions. i usually tell him he has to ask papaw about that stuff cuz i know nothing about it. I mean, i know some...its just i don't really believe it. but i don't want to break my son's spirit and his beliefs and try to make him believe a certain way. He will find his own way just like i did.

  • you talk to new borns about God and saying their prayers. It is a daily process from birth. Even before birth.
