Most people who teach students of any age can relate to that moment when they get stumped by an unexpected question. This seems to happen more often with children because they think so differently compared to adults. It is okay to be stumped, and even to say that you'll need to do some research; we just want to avoid giving adult answers to child questions. It is my hope that by talking through some of these tricky topics ahead of time, you will be less likely to get stumped. If there are topics or questions you would like me to address in future columns, please feel free to email them to me at the address provided below. You can always take your child to ask a pastor, teacher, or other minister, but it's a good idea to give that person a “heads-up” beforehand.
