Children just naturally
do silly, careless things,...

I was reading an excerpt of a book today that talked about "Love and Respect in the Family"
and this was one of the scriptures used. I don't think I have seen it put this way in the Bible before but it is so true. Sometimes we over-react to everyday situations that maybe have even happened to us adults and blamed the kids for being non-respectful when, in fact, they are only being kids. The author stated that after a childish event she would pray, "Lord, help me to respond instead of react." That sounds like good advice in any touchy situation.
