n Matthew 16, Jesus presents his disciples with a two-part question. It is a masterful question and one that parents can use with great benefit.
Jesus asks his disciples, “who do people say that I am?” When the disciples finish giving their answers, Jesus makes the question personal. He asks, “Who do you say that I am?” Peter quickly proclaims that Jesus “is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”
This question revealed the content of Peter’s heart. You can use this two-part question effectively to help you understand your children’s thoughts. For example:
“Hey kids, what do you friends say is causing all of the damaging weather the country has been having?”
“What do you think has been causing this weather.”
“What do your teammates say about major league stars using performance enhancing drugs?”
“What do you think about PED’s?”
