A conversation starter

I’m always open to having a dialogue with my children to help them understand how to apply Christian Science in everyday life. I know they’re learning about God in Christian Science Sunday School, but they rarely talk to me about what they’ve discussed in class.

For a while, when my oldest son, who was six at the time, asked me questions about life, I would give him a human explanation. Then I would talk to him about the spiritual reality. Soon he began to cut me off by saying, “You always speak ‘spiritual’, ” making quotes with his fingers. I found it upsetting that he was refusing to listen or engage in this type of conversation with me. I thought that if I didn’t help him see that Life was limitless and not material, no one else would. I began praying to know how to speak to my son so that he wouldn’t shut out good ideas.
