There is perhaps no greater fear in a parent's heart than
the thought that a much-loved and well-cared-for child will make bad choices or
even become a prodigal.
What are parents to do in such circumstances? Authors Jim Newheiser and Elyse Fitzpatrick
speak from years of personal experience as both parents and biblical counselors
about how hurting parents can deal with the emotional trauma of when a child
goes astray. They offer concrete hope and encouragement along with positive
steps parents can take even in the most negative situations.
Includes excellent advice from Dr. Laura Hendrickson
regarding medicines commonly prescribed to problem children, and offers
questions parents can ask pediatricians before using behavioral medications. A heartfelt and practical guide for parents.
PaulWestern PA5 Stars Out Of 5encouraging, not condemningMarch 16, 2016PaulWestern PAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Too many godly parents face condemnation when their kids make bad choices, even when they did right to raise them. This book is very well balanced. It gives hope and comfort. It covers spiritual issues as well as medical/mental factors that MAY play a role (without blaming rebellion/sin on medicine).
Bethany5 Stars Out Of 5February 13, 2008BethanyThis book gave much hope and comfort to know someone has been through the same hard trials that my husband and I have been enduring. I would recommend this book for parents who have lost their children to the world after raising them to believe and trust in the Lord. Or to parents that have teenagers that are showing signs of leaving the faith. God is good and faithful. We trust in His sovereignty. Parents need to know that God gave us many examples in the Bible of parent with wayward children. We are called to be faithful. We cannot save our children.
