Mean Girls

I’ve got a problem! No, my girls do. But I want to help them. Honestly, I can’t. I’ve given out the good christian parent advice (and these girls are good at handling this stuff christ-like) but the situation is not getting any better. To be blunt, it’s getting worse!

They are the new chicks at church. We’re not in a new town, just new to this congregation. We left our old church where hubs was pastor in February. Our kids have joined this youth group for several events over the last few years. So they are not strangers here. They all go to the same school!
Sweetboy has several buds in this group….so he’s not having issues (and he LOVES his SS class/teacher!!). Boys, they just deal…huh?

Anyhoo, this one girl seems to be the instigator and has a follower that backs her mean-ness up. It is really hurtful and embarrassing. We’ve talked this out with our girls and even said, “Maybe you’re misunderstanding her, or she can’t be that bad, maybe she’s insecure, pray for her, be nice!”. All of which they have tried, to no avail. She’s just gotten meaner! And real good at looking friendly while doing it.

I don’t want to be a big whiner! But, I’m burdened for them. They love church and they love SS. But this is not a good situation. I don’t feel like this is the venue to pour it all out. So, I need your prayers. Pray as we deal with this…..girls can be so mean. Even grown-up girls can. Sadly, even christian ones. I know, I’ve experienced it! Maybe you have too.

God is not pleased with us when we behave in a way that hurts others. I’ve been guilty! Thank goodness for conviction. I don’t want to be a “hater”! I pray that my girls wouldn’t be either.
So….bless you for listening! I know it’s a hot topic and that mine aren’t the only ones to face it. I just wish I could take this sting away. Only God can.

Ps. 86:5 “You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.”
