Big Sister... Little Sister


Today my youngest, Kara came into my office and said that Nikki (my thirteen year old) kicked her -

Me: Why did she kick you?

Kara: Because she wanted me out of her room

Me: Why were you in her room?

Kara: I was bored and I wanted to bug her

Me: Did the kick hurt?

Kara: No, I just wanted to get her in trouble...

I called Nikki into my office -

Me: Why did you kick Kara?

Nikki: Because she keeps coming in my room.

Me: Are you allowed to use physical force?

Nikki: No, but she mad me really frustrated... and I wanted her to know..

Me: Nik, that is why I gave you the book to write in - when you are mad at your
sister instead of yell, kick or say mean things - write about it..

Nikki: Well, I that doesn't work because I want her to know - how I feel and what I think...

Me: Is that what God wants? Don't you remember the book of James that you
read the other day?

Nikki: Yes -

Me: I know you think I am old fashioned and I don't know what being thirteen (13) is like but believe me, I remember - If you can follow one rule and remember it at all times you you would be much more happy believe me... The rule is Love Dare Day 2 - show patience and say nothing negative....

Nikki: (not looking convinced) yes, ma'am....

It tough being a teenager with a little sister - but as a parent I must teach my daughter self control... teach her to act in love and patience.... I need to set an example of a Godly woman so that she can learn by example.. I must pray everyday for wisdom and God's loving hand to guide in the ways of His will.....

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

Had the same issues with my little sis, except she was the unkind one.

The older we got the better we got along...or it could be the fact she lives in PA.
