When your child has worn you out with her constant “Why?” questions, you can end the string of queries with the answer, “Because God made them that way.” (Pro Tip: This is the Christian version of “Because I said so.”)
When your child is lobbying for more TV time, she has this weapon in her arsenal: “But . . . but, God wants me to watch the rest of the movie.” (Pro Tip: This is the Christian version of “But I really, really want to.”)
The Theologically Challenging
When you coax your child to put her coat on, saying, “It’s a new coat, with snowflakes on it! Maybe this coat will make it snow!”, and immediately regret making this claim, your child will come to your rescue with this response: “God makes it snow! We can’t make it snow!” (Pro Tip: If God controls the weather, does that mean that God sends hurricanes and other natural disasters? Do you want to discuss this with a three-year-old?)
