Why were the people shouting?
This coming Sunday is known as Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord. It is the start of Holy Week. Palms will be handed out in Church in remembrance of the welcome and great praise that the people gave to him when he entered Jerusalem.
As we grow in our knowledge and love of Jesus, it’s natural to want to praise God.
Ask your child what the word ‘praise’ means to them.
Ask who regularly praises them and lets them know how good they’ve been.
How does your child feel when they receive praise?
Does your child praise anyone – and why?
How does your child feel when they praise someone?
It may help to share an example of someone you feel deserves praise.
