Don’t feel discouraged if your children haven’t learned to be reverent in church. Sitting quietly for three hours is a lot to ask of little kids. In a recent article by Mandy Slack of LDS Living, she offers advice for parents who aren’t sure how to act.

1. Prepare on Saturday to avoid feeling rushed as a family on Sunday.
2. Keep time in the hallway or foyer from becoming a fun alternative to meetings.
3. Surround them with good examples, including yourself.
4. Provide reverent entertainment like activity books and puzzles.
5. Help them understand your expectations.
