Teaching your children the Golden Rule to do for others what you would wish to have done to you is a common and positive practice for Christian parents. To children it means sharing, being gracious, and having compassion for others. But sometimes "do unto others" can only take your child so far.

This essay for parents of teens helps take the Golden Rule to the next level: how to live and act for justice in a complex world. How can we begin to understand layers of injustice, and seek to do justice in each place and time that we are able? How can we use our hearts and our minds to seek faithful responses to difficult issues? Questions for individual reflection and group study as well as suggestions for how to continue to address justice with your teen are included.
