The one thing that probably wears me down more than anything else as a mother is bickering: petty arguments and their results. "Maaah-meeee, he hit me!" I used to feel like a referee!
I began to see that I was also encouraging my children to become gossips as they constantly reported their grievances to me.
We knew there had to be an answer! So we started digging into God's Word. Here it is in a format that even a toddler (or adult) can understand!
Based totally on Scripture, this cartoon-illustrated chart-and-book set outlines:
9 steps for an offended person to follow
5 steps to encourage the offender to confess and forsake his sin
10 Scripture-based guidelines for parents when they must assume the role of judge in offenses
Examples from lives in the Bible
What to do with a false witness
How to discipline a child who takes pleasure in getting another child in trouble
Includes a chart outlining steps for both parties, with Scripture and cartoon drawings, and a 28 page booklet giving further directions, ideas, and verses that apply. The booklet material can easily be incorporated into your family worship time.
