“Above all, love each other.” 1 Peter 4:8.
Jesus commanded us to love above anything else. This can be difficult for kids faced with bullying and anxiety – two incredibly (and unfortunately) common childhood situations.
As we look at the adult world of arguments and anxiety, it’s easy to see how it could trickle down into our children’s behavior and inner dialogue. But our children can learn to process thoughts in a healthy way. Simple truths can equip our kids to battle anxiety and bullying.
These tips can help to encourage children where they are and lay a healthy groundwork as they continue into the next stages of life. Let the love of Jesus flow through us to them.
