The Cradle Roll Program is for parents of newborns to age 3 years old. It consists of a series of mailings sent at regular intervals to the parents of these young children. These mailings will help parents teach their child to know God’s love by reading Bible stories, picture books, singing songs about God’s world and Jesus, and saying simple prayers. Besides giving specific suggestions regarding the child’s Christian growth, the Cradle Roll materials emphasize the importance of the parent’s own spiritual lives.

Parent Pages are monthly newsletters that support families. Each issue of Parent Pages helps families incorporate faith formation into the events of daily life. Families love the lively, engaging ways to enjoy Bible stories, prayer, worship, and devotion times with their young children. Because none of the activities require elaborate preparations or materials, families can try out ideas from the Parent Pages during everyday activities.

WAYS TO TELL YOUR CHILDREN “I LOVE YOU”
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it
keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-7

In these times when parents are stretched with one job or
even two jobs, and a variety
of other responsibilities,
remember to take the time to invest in the lives of your kids
and tell them you love them.

Just a partial list of ways:

Tossle their hair.

Give them a hug.

Wake them up with a kiss instead of hollering at them.

Make their favorite meal tonight.

Ask them for their opinion,
and then let them give it.

When you are with them,
really be with them.
Talk to them while not reading a book or newspaper.

Write them a note or card
and mail it.

Text them a short and simple “text hug.”

Have one-on-one dates for a movie or a walk in the park.

Look at pictures of family times and re-tell the stories.

Believe in them.

Pray for them daily.

Love them enough to listen.

Ban the words “I told you so” and “When will you ever learn?”

Love them enough to say “no”

Look for ways to encourage them and support them.

Teach them the
value of money.

Teach them graciousness towards others.

Forgive them their trespasses.

And the list goes on –
your turn!
