Helping Kids Behave During Religious Ceremonies

Get Your Kids to Behave in Church or Synagogue

My grandma used to pinch her children if they moved a centimeter or made a noise in church. My mom used to allow me to draw on the offering envelopes with the matched up pencil.

Since Easter and Passover are upon us, here are some tips to help you get through the worshiping hours without devilish screams or whining.

To see what the secret weapons are,


  • Small notepad or coloring book.
  • Crayons.
  • Snack like raisins, Goldfish or Cheerios.
  • Books.
  • Favorite stuffed animal.
  • Nothing — let them be bored.

Maybe your tot is wise beyond his years and can understand the diatribe being espoused from the pulpit. But until then, help the adults and families around you enjoy the divine moments by keeping your babe content.
