My 6yo DS ASD (moderately affected)I have no idea how to explain GOD to him. Any thought?
I just say God made us and everything around us and loves us :)
Great ideas so far,thanks! My problem is that God is such an abstract,and DS is soo concrete of a thinker.
I have read my kids a lot of Bible stories. They really like The Jesus Storybook Bible. I even like it. It's fun and short pieces. I keep them very short, VERY short with colorful pictures. I pray with them each night, even when they don't/didn't participate. We pray with them at meals and during the day at various times (thankful prayers, asking for help, etc). We go to church. We just chat about God in the car, at night, etc. Until very recently it was just us, as the parents, talking. My kids are now starting to either speak about God themselves or ask questions. I pray, a lot, on my own that God will reveal Himself to them in a way they understand.
