Children in a Christian family should be taught to be tolerant of differences in others that are not related to their character, or that do not manifest themselves in words or actions, as well as to be tolerant of other people's faults and weaknesses, since all people (including they themselves) have them.

At the same time, they should be taught that there are objective standards of right and wrong (for which the Bible provides guidance); to be discerning of other people's motives and intentions; and to react with Christian love and concern (which does not preclude anger or rebuke that focuses on actions rather than on personality) toward those who deliberately violate those standards in their speech or conduct, or in their treatment of others.
