Dante's first reconcilliation is on Saturday. We have been having discussions regarding the difference between a 'sin' and and 'accident' or 'mistake.' I want him to have solid sense of accountablity, but not an over active sense of guilt. So, while driving home from school, I asked him to give me an example of a mistake/accident. He thought hard and then stated," A mistake is if I accidently hit my brother with a light saber while playing Star Wars." I then asked him for an example of a 'sin.' He thought again for a moment and then emphatically said, "A SIN is if i hit him, kick him in the nuts, and slap him upside the head."
Oh yea...he's got the concept!
