Author, editor, and speaker Glynnis Whitwer identifies many of the inevitable hurts children experience--harsh reprimands from coaches or teachers, uncaring remarks from family members or friends, troubling misunderstandings between siblings--and gives parents practical, effective advice to handle these painful situations. She also gently helps readers identify their own personal fears, painful memories, and angry reactions and understand how those emotions cloud their judgment and interfere with effective assistance.
Warm, encouraging, and filled with heartfelt inspiration, each chapter includes
- Life stories of how other parents successfully dealt with similar issues
- Scripture memory verses for children and parents
- Study and discussion questions for groups, parents and their children, or personal devotions
As parents realize they can't protect their children in all circumstances, they can gain confidence knowing they've taught their children to respond to life's everyday hurts in a healthy and loving way.
