Why Teach Forgiveness?
Understanding a nuanced concept like forgiveness takes a lot of guidance, but ultimately it will help kids get along better in social situations and, later, build lasting, healthy relationships. So how can you teach your child forgiveness?
First, make sure your child understands what forgiveness is. Remember, forgiving someone isn’t forgetting what they did or condoning their behavior. It’s more about moving past an incident, letting go of resentment, and giving someone a second chance.
