Product Description

Are children in the way in churches today or do we see them as valuable members? This book will cause you to reflect on how we relate to children, especially young children, beginning with an overview of children's ministry dynamics and how children learn. The second section addresses children in the 21st century and identifies recent social and cultural changes, reflecting on what the future might look like. The next section focuses on children under age 3, considering the best-quality care and safety issues. The last, large section describes the rich resources available to infants and toddlers, creative resources available for their development, and the power of storytelling.

Publisher's Description

A practical book for children's ministries

The first years of a child's life are critical. During this pivotal time children have a powerful curiosity and exuberance for learning, and make strong connections through their experiences. This is also when a child's attitudes, values, and perceptions are formed: Do I belong here? Am I good enough?

In recent years, education researchers have developed a much deeper understanding of how children learn. While early learning teachers and schools constantly review their approach, churches frequently employ antiquated practices. Many churches alienate children because their teaching methods don't meet children's needs and because churches don't realize that some of the strongest messages are hidden. At worst, we are inoculating our children against church.

Children in the Way? challenges churches in their ministry to children, informs children's workers about the latest research, and provides practical ideas. The authors provide a two-year program and suggest dozens of ways of providing relevant experiences and developing children's creativity so that children's encounters with church are positive and enriching.
