Overview

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.

    Wise and Practical Advice from a Mom

    Glynnis Whitwer knows what she's talking about. 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. The author wrote with compassion and, yet through stories, revealed her personal insights, shortcomings, and growth.
    I like her attitude and approach; she empowers parents to empower their kids.
