Teaching Babies, Ones, and Twos: Separation Anxiety

Crying baby

You see his lips quiver and his eyes well up with tears. This 9-month-old has never cried before when his parents brought him to the baby room at church. All of a sudden, he bursts into tears when his mom hands him into your arms. You recognize that he is going through separation anxiety. This is a tough stage for the preschooler to go through, but it marks another milestone in his mental development which also has an impact on spiritual development.

Families on Mission

Sharing God's love together is sure to ignite a lifelong passion for missions in your family! Use these resources at home to reinforce what preschoolers are learning at church. Talking about and praying for missionaries will spark creative ideas for helping others in your own community.  

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Teaching Babies, Ones, and Twos

Baby

Ten-month-old Trey reaches his hands over the side of his high chair and drops a toy onto the floor. He leans over to look for the toy as you pick it up and put it back in his hands. He giggles as he once again drops the toy and leans over to watch you pick it up again. This game is repeated several times as you play together. Trey is having fun, but does this show you anything about his faith development?
