Read 1 Samuel 1:6-10 out loud with your child.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Think about the last time that you were very upset or very angry. How did you behave?
Parent Note: Anger, rage, and jealousy are destructive emotions. They show a lack of faith that God loves us and is in control. We should not worry; instead, we should trust in God, giving ourselves to Him for His use and safe keeping.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, please help me to trust that You are in control
You’re a good God, and you care about how I feel
Thank you for loving me the way that you do
In Jesus’s name, amen
