In my neighborhood, there are a lot of children here. They are about the same age. I don't know why the kids don't want to play with my 3y.o son. I guess my son is too active and doesn't understand to follow the instructions of his friends. Sometimes, they hit and push my son to get away. They even didn't welcome him in front of their house. As a parent, of course I get angry, but some people advise me to calm down as they are just kids. My husband and I decided not to allow those kids got in our house. however, my son always invite them. Once, they played in my house, i asked them to go out, but my son said,'mom, it's not nice! it's okay..' I got shocked. They always do bad to my son, but he seem doesn't realize it. However, he gave me a lesson of forgiving. How many of us could do a good thing for someone who do a bad one to us?

Hello Tjen! You must be really proud of having a sun like that. Usually boys his age grow being a bully and a head ache to all. Your son is very sweet...

Children tend to forgive getting shove because shoving is always part of their play arsenal. So they tend to get along with some of it. I guess people who be "forgiving" as kids are those adults with a child at heart, who enjoyed life to the fullest. People who love and enjoy life, those who can laugh at their mistakes, tend to have deep capacity to absorb unhappiness or pain.

thanks for your response, it's nice words.. I'm totally agree with you...sometimes we act like kids, but don't have a big heart to forgive.
