When my almost-teenage daughter was in 3rd grade, God inspired me with an idea for helping my daughter and some of her classmates to learn about friendship. We learned a great deal together at the time.
Well, here I am again. My youngest daughter is in some need of help in this area. She started a new school this past fall, and though she loves it, the social atmosphere is quite different from what she’s used to. Tricky situations have come up, ones I haven’t known how to answer all the time. So I told her last night that we needed to get into the Bible and see how Jesus would deal with these scenarios. That’s when the Holy Spirit led me back to what I once wrote to help my other daughter, Friendship Deedz from A to Z.
The first time through this with her, I learned as much about friendship (maybe even more) as she did. Perhaps you too need to go back to the basics with us. BTW, it is written for parents or teachers to do with boys and girls, ages 6ish to 10ish. Any of you interested? If so, I’ll put the link for a download at the end of this post. But will you do me a favor? Let me know if decide to do these. I may start a “Family Friendship Friday” here on my blog where we could share what we are learning, but I won’t do this unless there is plenty of interest.
Feel free to pass onto your friends. In my opinion, we’d have better relationships with our friends and fellow brothers and sisters in Christ as adults if we’d learned the basics as kids. It’s much more difficult to change our habits when we’re older…so I’m passionate about instilling His Truth in my kids’ lives now. Would love for you to join me.
