    A suggestion for preparing kids to understand the concept of belief:

    "Try a game called “Fact, Fiction or Belief.” [...] Make statements and have your child label them accordingly. For instance, you might say: “The moon is in the sky.” (Fact!) “You like to eat rocks.” (Fiction!) “Pink is the best of all the colors.” (Belief!)

    Remember: don’t try to make things too literal or complicated or to inject actual religious beliefs into your examples...."

    There's a far more effective way to achieve those improvements: fathers.
