Raising or working with children provides us and them opportunities for spiritual insight and growth—even a helpful perspective on our world. And it's vital to do all we can to nurture and protect the spiritual innocence of children and to help them learn to exercise their God-given dominion over evil. "Nothing unworthy of perpetuity should be transmitted to children," writes Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 61). As a parent, one may struggle with how to balance protecting a child's innocence with not letting him or her be vulnerable or blind to evil. This task can surely be met through the understanding that Christian Science brings to light.
Our preschool-age daughter, Rachel, has seen how God helps her if she isn't feeling well. And I know God has helped me to answer her many questions about the world. She has brought up questions about such topics as earthquakes and "bad guys."
