When Your Kid Is Hurting – Kevin Leman
Dr. Kevin Leman does it again! Known for his practical, no nonsense advice, he presents this wisdom filled book aimed at Parents.
Our world introduces kids to so much pain, hurt and woundedness way to early and often. Dr. Leman has written a handbook to walk parents through how to approach real conversations with their kids in response to many, many situations.
The situations he address include the “Hollywood Experience” that the media sets before us as the normal, mass shootings, gangs, discrimination, apathy, situations at school and home and how to respond to even the very sensitive child.
He has clear guides for discussion starters, as well as activities to together. The Q & A section is very helpful and comprehensive. It served as a good reminder of just how much harder navigating through growing up is today, as compared to my generation. They have to deal with things that we could never have imagined, and I think that some parents just don’t know how to simply begin to address it!
I foresee this on many bookshelves, and many will be because I plan to give these as a resource to our families. A must for any Pastor’s library, Youth Pastors and parents and those who work with them. I highly recommend this handbook.
