The Child's Role in Christian Science Healing

Sometimes children seem to believe a bandage is an effective remedial agent. When a cut or scratch is bandaged, they think the patch of gauze will make the wound hurt less. With this expectation they often stop crying the moment the bandage goes on.

Children, perhaps, are no different from many adults in thinking that something physical (or medical) has to be done to heal their ills. But they as well as adults can understand, through reason, that physical conditions have mental causes and are therefore changed by a change of thinking. They can be shown that scientific prayer, that is, Christian Science treatment, can and does heal. Youngsters can learn that God is Love and that He loves them. They are His children, loving and good and well, and this understanding brings the only real and lasting cure.
