I’m sorry - Aria MacDonald

I’m sorry

One of the fascinating parts of parenting is seeing the social skills of your children develop. Aria and Asher’s interactions are great to watch, they obviously love each other and take great enjoyment in each others company, but like any little sinners and any brother and sister, there are times when things get messy. There are also times when they express their rebelliousness against us as parents.

In these situations it is interesting to see them learning the right behaviours and how to resolve conflicts and admit their faults. For a while there, Aria flat out refused to ever say sorry. Now she and Asher have both learnt to say sorry and show genuine remorse when they hurt each other or offend us.

One of our big pushes lately (after reading some great advice in PastorDad by Mark Driscoll) has been to explain to them that they are naughty and that doesn’t just bother us, it bothers God and they need to say sorry to God too. When they do act up and require time out or a serious sit down and talk, we also pray with them prayers of repentence and to ask God for forgiveness. Hopefully this will teach them about their need for Jesus and what he has done for them.

Anyway as you can probably tell by now, no news about Omaha, but we are still hopeful.
