Parents should teach them about forgiveness & the forgiveness process. The schools/churches can host an event about forgiveness. Proverbs 22:6 states, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Like Catherine Ponder suggested, “the forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good. I believe this is true. The more I have forgiven myself and others in my life - the more miracles, joy and happiness flowed in easily. And now isn't that what every parent wants? Kids that know how to be happier, more compassionate and forgiving of self and others so their best life just opens up in front of them with less struggle and more ease. I believe so.” Maureen Healy said, “I have found that parents that teach their kids how to "really forgive" set them up to succeed and create a foundation of strength as well as self-love.”

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1-4).
