We’ve all heard the expression, “Two wrongs don’t make a right”, but what does this really mean? What lesson are we trying to teach our kids when we repeat this mantra that we heard from our parents, who heard if from their parents, and so on?

Of course this is a valid interpretation and we should encourage our children to check in with their IGS before responding to a hurt. This will help them know whether or not their action is based in fear or anger, or is a loving response.
There is another story behind this adage that is just as true.
