I just read about this approach in another book! The author talked about how questions are a child’s way of expressing love and trust and their way of starting a conversation. So when the author’s child asked what’s that when pointing to an elephant or something else, she’d tell a story and her child would come and listen and relax, really seeking relationship over answers at times. I need to remember this!! Such a good way of looking at things!
this video, along with your “show me the hard part” has been a GAME CHANGER in our house in just under a week! i can’t thank you enough! it’s funnny and amazing how a small change in words can bring about a whole different understanding.
Sometimes I turn the question around to my three-year-old and ask her “why do you think that is?”. She is usually able to answer the question because she does know the answer and just wants to converse.
More often than not, we land on “because God is sovereign.” :)
