Bullying. It’s heartbreaking to see our kids suffer at the hands of others. How do we handle it? First, listen. Assure them that they’re not alone. It’s hard, but teach them to respond with kindness, knowing that sometimes love can overcome hate. Jesus said in Matthew 5:44, “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Secondly, encourage them to speak to a teacher, counselor, or trusted adult who can intervene. Also, remind them they are God’s masterpiece. Lastly, teach forgiveness. Holding onto anger and bitterness only hurts them. Encourage them to release their pain to God and pray for healing in their heart. Remember, as parents, we are called to guide and support our kids through life’s challenges. Trust in God’s wisdom and lean on His strength.
