It is crucial that the Christian educator have a general understanding of the developmental patterns in these areas that he may develop curriculum and present the truths of God to the child in a manner that is both meaningful and accurate. The studies of Elkind, Piaget, and Kohlberg are useful tools in accomplishing this task. Viewing the child as a whole becomes invaluable in educating our children to God's precious truth.
