How can children today differentiate between what is real and what is make believe? Years ago a child's imagination was the only creator of make believe. Today there is a whole industry that caters to young minds. Characters we read about now come to life on large screens. In addition, children can actually talk to beloved characters at theme parks.
In this world of make believe, how can God become real to our children? What are the truths every child should learn? What are some practical ways to help our children grow? These are some of the questions we will be looking at in this study.
