Part 1:
Countless parents fail to realize the capacity for learning which exists in their young children. As a consequence, they let great opportunities slip by which they could have used to embed biblical information into their children’s minds.

The Lord has made it very clear that he wants children to be taught about him. (See Exodus 10:12, 12:26; Deuteronomy 4:9 and 6:7). The following words from Deuteronomy 11:18-19 are especially striking: “

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. TEACH THEM TO YOUR CHILDREN, TALKING ABOUT THEM WHEN YOU SIT AT HOME AND WHEN YOU WALK ALONG THE ROAD, AND WHEN YOU SIT DOWN AND WHEN YOU GET UP.”

How to Use This Material

Success in using this material is purely a matter of repetition. The goal is not to teach principles or concepts --- children can learn these later.

The idea is to go over the questions repeatedly until the answers can be given promptly. It is very helpful to get some 5 X 8 cards and cut pieces of uniform size on which a single question can be written. Keep a stack of cards handy. Keep some in the car and go over a few on the drive to school, or to church, or to other places. THE KEY IS CONSISTENCY!

Parents can be creative in using the questions. Make it fun. Use little prizes or rewards for getting so many correct answers. It is better to avoid lengthy training sessions; short sessions more frequently are more effective. Parents may not understand initially how valuable this training is, but in later years they will be very glad that they gave their children this teaching. It will stay with them for many years.
