Making Conversation with a Three Year Old

kidMaking conversation with a three year old can be a little interesting.

Especially when you’re trying to walk them back to their classroom while distracting them from the fact they’re separated from their parents.

Their insights, however, are often off the radar. My all-time favorite is as follows:

“Wow, today’s going to be so much fun!”

No response.

“Your friends are going to be so excited to see you!”

No response.

“You’re going to get to learn so many things today!

No response.

“You’ll get to learn about colors, animals, and even about Jesus.”

No response. Wow, tough cookie.

“Did you know that Jesus lives IN YOUR HEART?”

So that got her attention. She swung her head around, and looked up at me.  With a dead serious look on her face, she asked, “But what if I throw up?”

Well, that wasn’t exactly the answer I’d imagined.

“Hmmm…well, I guess it’s a good thing he’s not in your tummy!”

The first smile of her day crossed her face, and she marched into her classroom.

Evangelization takes many shapes and forms.

    My kid is exactly the same. Very intelligent and is good with rote memory, but doesn t have conversations. What type of specialist should I see about this issue? His school has mentioned it, but I am not sure where to start to get him help. Any update on your kiddo?
