"From the tender dedication to the final page of chapter 16 author Glynnis Whitwer graciously communicates that Jesus is the best model we have for preserving through life's disappointments. Infused by real life examples, supported by memory verses, encouraging words, and discussion or journal questions When Your Child is Hurting is an essential volume to add to your parenting library."
--Dr. Patricia A. Ennis, co-author of Becoming a Woman Who Pleases God
"Glynnis Whitwer's When Your Child is Hurting is a terrific, well-written tome, that I can sincerely recommend to parents.
"When Your Child is Hurting speaks to the heart of every mom with empathy, examples, and exhortation. It's true; we all want to protect our kids from hurt but that prohibits them from experiencing the educational reality of life, developing character, or becoming healthily independent. The better--and the more reasonable--approach is to show unconditional love, support, counsel, and maturity. I felt the author wrote with compassion and, yet through stories, revealed her personal insights, shortcomings, and growth."
--Brenda Nixon, MA, speaker and author of the award-winning The Birth to Five Book
