In Words Kids Need to Hear, David Stall has chosen seven simple statements that can have a profound impact on your child's life. Each chapter covers one of the phrases. The seven statements are: I Believe in You; You Can Count on Me, I Treasure You, I'm Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Because, No, and I Love You. Paperback.
