This book is not just for those of Jewish faith; it is for parents everywhere seeking practical advice. Mogel's writing style is beautiful to read and her insights are a true gift.

I loved this book so much that I buy a copy for all expectant moms that I know. It is easy to get frustrated while parenting and this makes you put life into perspective and forces you to look at all those irritating things that happen as blessings. Instead of focusing on what a child can't do, you look at the lesson that teaches you and how to focus on the positive. This book is very relevant for todays parents and is applicable to any religion or background. I continue to re read this book as a reference. You will love this book. In fact I am online now ordering another copy for one of my kids teachers who is expecting her first baby soon!

Although my family is not Jewish, reading 'Blessings of a Skinned Knee' gave me a new perspective on the various ways of raising children. Having three kids myself, I need all the help I can get, and found this book a great guide.

I loved this book. It offers down to earth advice, some of which has been lost among this generation of parents. She advocates for a parenting style that isn't harsh or unmerciful toward children, but also one that sets a foundation for training up a child to be a resilient and good human being. Maybe it's simply my personal views, but I really feel as if she pin points very important things we need the future generation to learn. The only thing I had a hard time with was some of her religious theology in the last chapter, but it was easy enough to look past. Even within what I consider to be mistaken religious views, she had great advice that I 100% stand by.

This is certainly a blessing. This is a must have for your family, which teaches the concepts of the Torah or the Ten Commandments. I also have suggestions for a complementary addition to this book.
