- Ask your children what they are afraid of and try to ease their fear by comforting them and encouraging him to be strong and courageous.
- Explain that it is OK to be afraid of some things and that it helps them to know what is safe and what is not.
- Remind them that God is always with them and they can talk to God whenever they are afraid.
- If your children are scared of something, try to expose them to it several times, but be sure it is a positive experience by adding some kind of motivation or reward.
This version of the story is told in rhyme and the illustrations are realistic. I like this version because it tells the main lesson of the story and gives a prayer to reflect on at the end of the book. Ages 2+

Activities that Teach Values: Courage
Bag of Courage
Materials: Paper bag, different objects with different textures.
Activity: Place an object in a bag without letting the child see it.
Have the child reach their hand in to feel the object.
Tell them how they are brave for trying it without seeing what is inside.
You could add a little bit of excitement if the children are older
by pretending whatever is in the bag is moving or jumping.
Be sure to explain that this is just a game and the difference
between being dangerous and being courageous.

We talk about David & Goliath frequently, and I hope that my boys are able to learn lessons through that story. I definitely should try implementing some of your tips.
