7 Year Old Boy Repairs A Fender Bender

(my little man’s car pillow)

My youngest man-child who is 7, worried me so much about his broken car pillow.

When it first broke he said to me, “Mama, I must throw away my car because it is broken“.

(the fender bender)

I replied, ” Why don’t you fix it?

To which he replied, “How?

This became our teaching moment for the week. This is the week that he learned three lessons.

1. When things break we should try to fix them.

2. Even if at first we don’t know how, we should try to learn.

3. The basics of sewing.

(at the repair shop)

The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. Proverbs 12:24

(push pins to  keep everything sealed while hes sews)

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. Ecclesiastes 9:10

(all fixed)

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24

He was so pleased with his work and I was pleased with him!!

Spread the love

  1. We have that same car that ripped in the same place. We used good ole’ duct tape to repair it! How smart to use it as a teaching moment using the Bible! 🙂
