It’s Just a Phase: Elementary School
Elementary school kids are busy and rapidly changing
Children in elementary school have busy days filled with school, activities, computer games, fun and then fights with their friends. They have a lot of natural curiosity about living things and enjoy having pets. They are still impulsive but are beginning to think and plan ahead.They have a thousand questions. This age group has good and bad days just like adults. As they move into their preteen years, some are still “little kids” and others are quite mature. Some are already entering puberty, with body, emotions, and attitude changes. These children begin to think logically and they want to “do church” – learn how we worship, serve and live out our faith.
