October 2018 - Toddlers Parent Cue

 OCTOBER

         2018

BIBLE STORY:
EXODUS 1:21—2:10; 12:31-42
Moses' mom hides him in the reeds along a river bank in order to protect him from 
Pharaoh.
SAY THIS:

Who's got it?
God's got it.

 
BASIC TRUTH: God loves me.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your child's room this month, say, "Good morning! Is my sweet [boy/girl] ready for a great day? It's going to be great because God's got it!"

 DRIVE TIME


As you drive, talk about where you are going and what you will do when you get there. When you get where you're going, say, "God is with us when we go to the [place name]. God is with us wherever we go!"

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, I love [child's name] so much! Please help me trust that You've got it, especially when it comes to [his/her] future. I am so thankful You are with us wherever we go. You are our comfort and hope. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


While bathing your child, add several floating objects to the bath water. Hide one of the objects in one of your closed hands. Hold both closed fists in front of your child and tell them to guess which hand's got it. When they find the object, say, "Yes! This hand's got it!" Continue playing. Talk about how God has everything. God's got it!

COMPARISON IS THE THIEF OF CONTENTMENT
By Liz Hansen



Before becoming a parent, I was continually tempted to compare myself to others: My writing, my run times, my interior decorating (or lack thereof), my homemade pizza. I could always find a quick shortcut to discontentment.

Now, as a parent, I face a whole new set of temptations to engage in comparison.

Child Development 

MILESTONES: Those stony, immovable pillars of speech, motor skills, and pretend play. Stop eating those wood chips, kid. Don’t you see the other toddlers climbing the slide on their own? I mean, you’re deep-sixing a full-ride scholarship to college right now . . .
