When our three young grandkids came for a sleepover, the next morning I found two of them in the playroom doctoring the dolls and teddy bears. “Where’s Peter?” I asked.“He’s resting,” Clara said.Resting? He had just eaten breakfast after a long night’s sleep. I walked past the living room and saw Peter sitting in the rocker. With his head bowed, eyes closed, and hands folded, he listened to the children’s worship music. I wanted to get my camera and take a photo, but it seemed a holy moment, so I tiptoed away.
Kids can also enjoy worship music while they play. Recently when two grandsons came for an overnight, they had a fun, congenial time building Legos while kids’ Christian CDs played in the background.
2. Plan fun, constructive things to do with them.
3. Create orderly, peaceful surroundings.
4. Realize things won’t always be peaceful. When conflicts arise, be a peacemaker and work together with your grandchild(ren) to resolve problems in loving ways.
5. Agree to accept and forgive each other.
