Please encourage love for others in our children even when it’s hard for them. Address the fears as effectively as one can early as possible because it’s hard to unlearn behaviors that isolate them from others.
I know the challenges of making time to help them face each battle they encounter, hence why spending time in the word can help reinforce the values and principles of navigating the onslaught. I think we can underestimate what they encounter daily and overestimate that we have given them the right tools enough for easy access from their, mental, emotional and spiritual tool box. I know I have at times.
Be mindful not to mask it with treats that may mask them truly working through the problem leaving a whole that does not help if the challenge appears again. Please do not confuse readiness and fear, lets prepare them to face the challenges with the right knowledge that is secure in the mind and deeply rooted in their hearts.
Hopefully this can help someone.
