Have you ever been in a restaurant and seen that look of panic on a child’s face? You know, the one where they notice that the waiter is carrying mac and cheese that is a different color than the out-of-a-box orange powder kind they eat at home? The panic you’re seeing, it’s the inherent fear of change. As humans, we are averse to change. But here’s the thing: change is a necessary part of life.
We as Christians are called to grow in God’s call for our lives. Is your daughter experiencing a season of change right now? Maybe it’s starting at a new school or the birth of a younger sibling. How is your daughter coping?
Teaching your daughter how to accept change starts with one simple step: regularly pushing her out of her comfort zone little by little. Instilling a heart of resiliency and flexibility in your daughter through subtle challenges will prepare her for the inevitable change that life is bringing.
