To Parents of young children, may we suggest: Relax, God put the wiggle in children. Don’t feel you have to suppress it here. Sit toward the front: children will be more attentive when they can see what’s going on. Explain the parts of the service, and help you child follow along with the printed parts of the service and the hymns. Sing, pray, and respond. Your child will learn by copying you. If your child needs to leave, please do so, but please come back!
