Sometimes Children are Just...Children

 Children just naturally 
do silly, careless things,... 
Proverbs 22:15a

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.
