Teaching your Child to Forgive


Be the example

Let us be the living role model and show our child how you forgive others.


“Treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.” is the basis of all human morality and the underlying  tenet of all faiths and religions. This should be the first lesson you teach your child. Let’s reinforce this Golden Rule to our children. Forgiveness is the natural result of its application. The important lesson is to keep trying, making efforts, understanding forgiveness, loving and kindness. Compassion and love heal.

    Kalyani, Thank you for an informative and instructive article. Lucid and well-crafted. Please accept my compliments! I endorse your thinking.
    In my reckoning, our actions fall broadly into two categories: Good and Not-so-good (I prefer not using bad). The good actions need to be praised and the not-so-good actions forgiven. You have given reasons for forgiveness and ways to live that virtue. That helps the reader understand and hopefully respond. God bless.
