Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Cookies. Candy. Cutting down the Christmas tree. Decorating. And, Christmas programs. Some of our kids love them. Others hate them. Others don’t mind them but want to be ignored. Many times the reaction to uncomfortableness of these programs end up being more entertaining than the actual program itself. How should we handle this? If it’s an embarrassing situation, don’t do what I did – post it to Facebook or Instagram. That can hurt some kids. Secondly, talk about it. If they’re afraid point to Scripture instructing us NOT to fear. And, thirdly, let them practice in front of the family. Sometimes that’s all they need to be okay in front of people.
