Whether it’s to delay bedtime or just because they like to reflect at the end of the day, sometimes our children seem more open and willing to talk to us when it’s time to go to sleep.
Spend a few minutes tonight just talking – or mostly listening! – to your daughter at bedtime. I typically pray with each daughter in her room before she goes to sleep, so this is the perfect time to just sit on her bed and see if she has something she wants to share. Maybe asking a few gentle questions like “What was the best part of your day?” or “Is there anything I can pray about for you?” will get the conversation rolling.
