Being the mom of three boys who love slap stick comedy there is a very thin line with humorous words and hurtful words. How do I teach them discernment with speech?
At our house “goober” is a term used for those crazy mistakes that are made. No one gets upset, we laugh and carry on. Call someone at my house an “idiot” and war and crying will happen.
Of course there are just ugly times when words are chosen to tear down. Sometimes the words were said for slap stick humor but the receiver took them to heart.
