Forgive Your Kid Because One Day You’ll Want Them To Forgive You

  • Your child will hurt you. As they get older, that hurt can hurt more.
  • Forgive them when they hurt you. Let them know you forgive them.
  • One day, you will hurt your child. More than once.
  • Model forgiveness so they will know how to forgive you one day.
  • Forgiveness is not…
    • excusing their behavior.
    • forgetting.
    • a feeling.
    • reconciliation.*
  • Forgiveness is “a choice you make to give up the right to hold them accountable for the wrong they did to you.”*
  • *Thanks to Renovate for redefining forgiveness for me.
