** Here are some articles that I came across this week that I thought I would share with you. Feel free to comment!
How to Handle Sibling Fights – As a parent, I found this helpful.
There’s No Time Like The Present to Teach Children About Sexual Abuse– Excellent article about how to broach the subject of sexual abuse with preschoolers. But I do agree with a commenter that the author focuses more on “stranger danger” than those with whom the child is familiar with and trusts.
Christian Choate, Boy Who Died Locked In Cage, Wrote About Abuse And Desire To Die – Here is one reason why homeschooling needs more regulations.
The Abuse of Forgiveness – Excellent article about forgiveness as it relates to victims of abuse. “The church should be a place of refuge, but often we have not known how to listen, how to be present to victims. We have told them that their anger is wrong, that they need to move on, to forgive, to forget. We have denied their right to mourn and, instead, have laid new burdens on them. All this is understandable—as part of our effort to distance ourselves from pain and vulnerability—but not at all helpful.”
