I’ve got two boys: A one-year-old and a 2.5-year old. So if you’re a parent too, I know there is bound to be a time when you just want to give up. Behaving at the Kingdom Hall is a skill that all kids should have. Now, my kids have their good moments and bad moments—just like any other kids—but there are a few things that I’ve found that make a remarkable difference in their ability to sit still.

I find that when I do all seven of these things, their behavior improves, and when I don’t… well… let’s just say that the final prayer just can’t come fast enough!

Knowing to behave at the meetings isn’t a skill that just magically happens. It’s a skill that we must teach. Here are seven ways to help your little ones behave during our Christian meetings.

P.S. Do you sometimes struggle to get your children to behave? Looking for some tools that will help them pay attention? Then you’ll want to check out our meeting products for children. Click here

The moving declaration against Babylon the Great greatly impressed me and that night I dedicated my life to Jehovah in prayer.
