Do Your Children Understand Easter?

Help your children grasp and understand the depth and importance of Easter. Use our mini-lessons to teach them certain aspects about Easter.

Many parents would agree that children should wait until they are older to see the acclaimed movie The Passion of the Christ, which graphically depicts the horrible violence that Jesus Christ endured before giving His life on the cross. Understanding Easter can present a challenge for our kids. However, this creates a wonderful opportunity for us parents to help their children understand Easter.

For the most part, children in our culture are privileged enough to be insulated from the reality and “scariness” of death.

Death and life, however, are at the core of the Christian message exemplified by Good Friday and Easter and remembered each Sunday. How much does your child understand that message?

Children need to know that dying was Jesus Christ’s reason for living on earth. Also, they need to know about Jesus’ resurrection three days later. As a parent, you can have the wonderful privilege of talking with your child about these important truths. Ultimately, the Easter season is great time to do this.
