Challenge for families:
- Play hospital ER with your child. Get out some band-aids, gauze and cotton balls and pretend that you have a boo-boo on your knee or elbow.
- Have your child bandage you up. While they’re “working” on you, talk to them about how much God loves us and He cares for us.
- After your child is finished, have them pray for your pretend boo-boos. Then pray and ask God to help your child to feel cared for, always.
- The next time you’re helping your child with a real boo-boo, remind them of God’s love and that He gave you to them to take care of them.
