Brenda Nixon5 Stars Out Of 5October 27, 2009Brenda NixonWhen Your Child is Hurting speaks to the heart of every mom with empathy, examples, and biblical exhortation. It's true; we all desire 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 emotional and spiritual maturity. Empowering our kids to handle defeat and disappointment is better than rescuing them.I felt the author wrote with compassion and wisdom while revealing her personal insights, shortcomings, and growth. I like her attitude and approach, and recommend this book to all parents!
