Helping children with guardian angels

You provide considerable help to children daily, whether as their parent, teacher, doctor, caregiver, relative, neighbor or family friend.

In a world that continues to whiz past our children every day, at an ever increasing rate, it’s nice to know they have guides to help them through it. You, of course, provide considerable help to children daily, whether as their parent, teacher, doctor, caregiver, relative, neighbor or family friend. Your assistance may be immediately apparent, or it may take many years before a sweet lesson actually hits home with them, as you likely experienced yourself.

But all the direction we provide our children may not be enough. Fortunately, there is another source of help we may be unaware of, or perhaps take for granted. That source is guardian angels, whose job it is to regularly guide children and ease them through rough times and new, possibly frightening experiences.

Children are naturally curious about angels. Here is some information about them that may help your children become more clearly aware of their guardian angels and understand how helpful they can be.

  • Angels never judge, and want only to bring people — especially children — to a happy state.
  • Remind children to thank their angels when you know they’ve been a help.
  • Suggest that when children are troubled, they just listen with open hearts as they relax and get quiet. The answer will be apparent and seem wise.
  • Angels sing, so ask children to sing along with their angels inside their hearts.
  • Teach children to tell sweet secrets to their angels. That way, the angels know how to help them.
  • Take your children to a store that sells angels and have each one pick out a small angel to put near their bed as a reminder of their guardian angel.
  •  Find a book about angels at a child’s reading level that has pictures, so they can have a visual reference.

Taking the time to increase a child’s knowledge of angels will help if they ever need someone to talk to when you’re not around. What greater gift can there be?
