Children also have a sense of wonder about their creator.  Make them tell you what they understand about God, His words, and how they have put what they understand into practice. Also, encourage them to believe in God's covenant and promises. Create time to talk about this regularly, by doing this you are building a very strong foundation for their mental health. When they grow older it strengthens them . In return, they are able to  face and conquer the storms of life
