Whether it is with teenagers, toddlers, or grown adults, it is basically all the same.
Sometimes people get their feelings hurt, and whether it was intentional or completely innocent it all hurts the same. And when it happens we have a choice to make.
It is the time when we have to decide how we are going to react.
It is so easy to get caught up in the emotions that are running high at the time of the situation, but as adults we have to step back and take a deep breath.
So how do you handle it?
Do you walk away, or do you confront them.
Whatever you do try to do it in a loving way if possible and just tell them how you feel.
Guess what, kids and adults often deal with the exact same thing. There will always be someone who whispers behind your back, or someone who calls you names, someone who doesn't want you to succeed.
If I could teach my kids anything, it would be to realize their worth.
Not how this world values them but God.
If we could just let them know how much God loves them, maybe the injustices of this world won't seem so big.
