WHAT ARE WE MODELING FOR OUR KIDS?

A little 5th-grade playground drama and a silly grudge that had gone on too long between best-friends led the two momma's to gather our 10-year-old tweens together to talk it out.

We laid some ground rules at the kitchen table 1) Allow each person to speak without interrupting. 2) Ask yourself, 'What part did I play in this?'

What should have been an hour-of-awkwardness turned into an incredibly powerful experience as the two girls took turns, digging deep into why they reacted and how they handle stress. - The mom and I, good friends for a while who love having deeper conversations, sat as silent witnesses (holding back tears of pride) as they shared. - The truth that came out of their heartfelt-sharing was incredible and we praised them for doing something most grown-ups can't even do. - Who says kids lack access to wisdom?! There is no 'junior' Holy Spirit: God whispers to them the same as He whispers to us. - Perhaps our kids are just silently waiting for us to model for them how to handle life? A little nudge toward reconciliation and listening well might be all they need. - We don't have to do it alone and neither do they.
