I saw this posted somewhere and saved it a while back.
It really sometimes is this simple. I have had so many conversations with kids and teens lately who feel on the outside. Outside of their friend group, their family, their dance class, soccer crew, you name it.
Maybe the best way we can support our kids is to teach them to be includers, to watch out for those on the edges, to have empathy and compassion, and to invite someone in.
