10 Ways to Guarantee Your Child Will Behave in Church   www.herviewfromhome.com







Over the past seven years, I’ve had a lot of experience taking my little ones to church. I’ve been blessed with six very energetic and explorative children, which in turn means I’ve received countless tips and tricks from fellow churchgoers about how to keep my children quiet and respectful at Mass. So, with all the experience I have hearing other people’s sure-fire tricks, I decided to compile this list of the top 10. I’m certain that if you just follow these 10 simple tips, your children are guaranteed to be little angels while in church.
