As an adult, and especially as a parent, nothing is worse than seeing a child who is struggling. If an adult has some type of hurt, trauma, disappointment, or devastating circumstance, of course we sympathize. (Hopefully, we move forward to lend a helping hand or a listening ear, too). But let’s face it. There’s just something special about a child – the beauty of what they could be, their innocence, and sweet faces – that fills us with immense heartache when they are hurting.
So, what do you do when your child has a hurting friend? You want to help, but how much is too much? How little is not enough?
