when should you teach your child to pray?

24 August 2010

The Holy Rosary

If you haven't done it yet, the right time to teach your child to pray is -- NOW. One very important responsibility of parents, to their children, is teaching the importance of prayer. No matter what one's religion is, prayer should be inculcated at an early age.

I started praying with my son when he can't even talk yet. When he was still in my womb, I'm sure he can hear my prayers. Babies and toddlers can remember a lot, their memory starts to develop even before they are born. I taught him The Lord's Prayer at the same time he was learning his ABC and 123.

Last year, my son already know how to lead the praying of the Rosary.

how nice. i've taught my kids to pray by the time they learn to talk, even simple prayers like thank you Jesus, can be amazing.

I agree, Mommy, it's our responsibility as parents to teach our children to know God and talk to Him through prayers.
