A special group of moms and tween girls have opened their hearts to us, and they are BRAVE and VULNERABLE in their transparency.
WE ARE CURRENTLY DELVING INTO THE TOPIC OF BULLYING.
It’s important to note two very important correlations between our first and second video. Both of our young friends in each video initially attempted to handle a really tough situation on their own, but they bravely discuss why that didn’t help resolve the challenge with their bullies. What did make a difference was talking with their mom and asking for help.
BOTH MOM AND DAUGHTER TEAMS ALSO SHARE THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER.
If your child is being physically assaulted, trust your mama gut. I’m not suggesting prayer is the only solution. However, prayer should most certainly be part of it.
It’s also important to distinguish the difference between a disagreement with your friend and bullying behavior. The difference between an argument with a friend and the assault from a bully is in the intention behind the conflict and the repetition of incidents. Bullies exhibit behaviors such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. How many of us have been on the receiving end of this kind of behavior?
JESUS HIMSELF WAS THE TARGET OF BULLIES IN HIS DAY.
If you are dealing with your own mean girl, take heart.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
