Our social and political landscape is incredibly contentious. We need guidelines to help us and our kids navigate these treacherous waters. In this episode, we discuss how to talk about sensitive topics with our kids, telling them the truth – which is often offensive -- but with love. How do we do that? I’ve got 6 guidelines.

Read the article that goes with this episode.


1. Listen. Really listen.
2. Respect other people’s beliefs. Don’t ridicule
3. Don’t assume a motive. Challenge methods, not motives.
4. Be more concerned about people than your position.
5. Speak in love while never denying truth.
6. Recognize that what people need most is not an argument, it is an experience with God.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. (Matt. 7:12)
