What do you do to calm your kids down when it is thundering and lightning and they are scared?

I use the same theory my mom used with me. The thunder is God moving his furniture around. The lightning is the angels taking pictures of us. The rain is the tears of Jesus seeing so many doing bad things.

I don't have kids but i think that the lullaby should work.I did that to my nephew and it worked,its not just about the lullaby but how you do it looking into the eyes and he or she sees how safe he or she is right there in your arms.

Neither of my children are afraid of thunder and lightning. We think its really cool, and we enjoy watching thunderstorms.

My wife and I try to sing a lullaby to our daughter, while we hug her. This usually works.
