I have 5 year old boys. The last few days have been interesting.
All of a sudden the other day they started talking about holy water. I have never mentioned it. Realized when they were pretending to throw it on each other and then fall over that they were playing vampire like they had seen on one of the kids shows they watch.
Today they were playing in the living room while I was taking pictures down off the walls to pack. One of them went and stood up to the wall, stretched his arms out to his side and bent one knee up. He flat out said “Look, I’m Jesus”. I asked him why he thought he was pretending to be Jesus like that and he said because it is on my Rosary.
I explained to him as best as I could without freaking him out that, this was the way Jesus died and it was not something to pretend play.
I have no idea how to handle all of this. I want to teach them what is correct but I don’t want to scare them. Any advice would be really appreciated.
