When I used to teach a small group of kiddos at church we did a Sweet and Sour share where each person got to speak (I often had to time it..we had some talkers ) and got to share something “Sweet” and something “Sour” about their week. The point of this was two-fold-to let each person feel valued and important…and to be there for each other through the “Sours”. Please note-this was NOT a time of complaining, negativity, or gossip. It was a time to truly share the hard things in life….to lift those up in prayer…and to consult God’s word and each other’s advice on these difficult situations. What might seem silly or “just a bad day” to us…matters to kids. Let’s not forget to listen!
