DON'T PUNCH PEOPLE IN THE JUNK: (Seemingly) Obvious Life Lessons to Teach Kids [NOOK Book]

Overview

When our youngest child punched two kids in the junk within an 18-hour period, I questioned whether I could have done anything to prevent it. To be honest, I hadn’t thought to tell my children directly not to punch people in the junk. It wasn’t a message that I imagined I would have to state with the straightforwardness of instructions like, "Don't talk with your mouth full."

Overview

When our youngest child punched two kids in the junk within an 18-hour period, I questioned whether I could have done anything to prevent it. To be honest, I hadn’t thought to tell my children directly not to punch people in the junk. It wasn’t a message that I imagined I would have to state with the straightforwardness of instructions like, "Don't talk with your mouth full."

However, once I stopped to think about it, there had been several rather obvious life lessons that I had been forced to teach our children over the years in order to help them navigate life. Don’t Punch People in the Junk: (Seemingly) Obvious Life Lessons to Teach Kids is a collection of those lessons that explores the journey of parenthood, which is by far the most challenging and rewarding endeavor I have ever attempted.

Many of these lessons involve statements that I never dreamed I would have to state directly to my children.
