The article approaches the topic of children's religious potential from two angles. On the one hand, it refers to the religious potential thet arises from the parent's relationship with the child. Expectancy and birth, and the educational relationship they give rise to, make the parents see their limitations and potentially open them up to religious dimension of life. On the other hand, the religious potential of the child refers to the potential which the chil carries within itself and which is waiting to show itself in the process of growing up. every child needs to find a family and a community to help him/her to give meaning to their experience. The family is the real place where education to faith can take place. The relationships that develop within the home provide the specific vocabulary through which the early stage of childhood can express itself.
