Daughter: Mom, if God is the source of all goodness and holiness, why did He create the evil one?

Mom: hmmm... No, he was not created as bad, but he disobeyed God.

Daughter: Why did God allow it?

Mom: Because God gives us free will.

Daughter: What is that?

Mom (just thinking): Can someone hand me over a concise parenting dictionary?.....

Mom (now speaking): It is when you can think and choose what you want, on your own. But there are only two choices: good or bad. The evil one chose to be bad.

P. S.

Did I get that right? Sure hope so...

Where can we get Ph.D. in parenting?

    Well said Hailey. It's all about free will. God didn't make the bad, he made everyone equal, then free will comes along, and we all have interesting lives.

    your answer was 100000% correct. the right words to describe to her what's that free choice. u can't explain more but she will understand more of it as she grows up.
