Last week I've learned something regarding kids’ behavior inside church shared by a fellow mom. My kids’ behavior inside church is embarrassing, they make noises, run around, sings loudly and make actions which I think is not appropriate inside church, so i would remind them from time to time to be quiet and listen to the priest. Apparently, these are not just ways to get attention; these are their ways of praising and praying. So today, when we heard mass, I let go of the feeling of embarrassment and let them do whatever they want, the result is I was able to listen to the homily and had a meaningful Sunday mass without the feeling of guilt that my kids did not behave properly. Their behavior afterall is proper for their age.
