I’ve noticed some kids hold grudges. Guess what? I’ve noticed a lot of ADULTS hold grudges too. As Christians, I find it funny how God has given us so much grace, yet we fail to extend that same grace and mercy to others. Guess what? Our kids learn our behavior. I’ve heard many kids say things like, “I’m not talking to her because she did this.” Or, “He’s not my friend anymore because…” The interesting thing is many times we hear parents saying the same thing. It happened to me just the other day. Somebody said, “I’m not talking to you because I’m still mad.” Don’t play. Keep talking. Keep joking. And continue to be their friend. That kind of example speaks volumes to our kids.
