Story Time Questions

While Gabriel took his afternoon nap, Josh decided to take Caleb and Sarah outside for some reading time. They sat under our big, shady tree, and even though it's really warm outside, they had a great time. I can't believe I didn't take a picture. It was really sweet to see them out there together on a blanket as Josh read to them.

Caleb picked out the books, and one of them was his children's bible.

They came inside and Josh said, "Guess what story Caleb selected to read?"

I thought for a moment but wasn't sure what he was getting at. "I have no idea, which one?"

"We read the ten commandments," he continued. "Guess which one he asked me about?"

I instantly knew.

How do you explain adultery to a child in an age appropriate manner? I don't really want to just brush it off. If he asks a question, I want to be able to tell him the answer at his level.

I definitely prefer questions like, "Why is the sky blue?"

Adultery? Perhaps an adult wanting to leave his family and act like a teenager instead of a daddy.

He could do like my husband has done since our girls started asking questions and tell them "I will answer that question for you when you are 13". I think that he is kind of regretting it now that our oldest is turning 13 in less than a month and remembers almost everthing that he has to answer for her. ;)
