Publisher's Description

As our children grow up, they hear many conflicting messages about who they are. They are told that they can define themselves by their achievements or popularity, or by how they feel, and that sexuality, morality and gender are just questions of personal choice.

Too often, Christian parents feel nervous and intimidated about engaging with their children on the subjects of bodies, gender, sexuality and their sense of self.

This warm and realistic book helps parents to show their children that the Bible has better answers than our culture on these topics, which are neither surprising nor confusing to our creator God.

Full of biblical truth, practical wisdom and discussion questions, this book will inspire and equip parents to help their children find their identity in being made and loved by Jesus. An identity based on God's love will help Children to have both a positive and a realistic view of themselves, and it will give them confidence to live by faith in a secular world.

The real-life stories contained in the book are drawn from every stage of family life, from birth through to the teenage years, making it a valuable resource for any parent.

It can helpfully be read alone, as a couple or in a group with others from your church.

Author Ed Drew is the Director of Faith in Kids, which produces a range of resources for families and kid's ministry, including a series related to this book, entitled "Who Am I? which also includes Sunday School lessons and podcasts.

Editorial Reviews

Brilliant, well-researched, laugh-out-loud funny and empowering. Ed Drew is the perfect companion (ally, teacher, confidante and friend) for the crazy roller coaster that we call parenting. -- Jonty and Linda Allcock (Jonty is the pastor of The Globe Church, London; Linda is the author of Deeper Still)

Our children are growing up in a very different world to the one we grew up in, and there are certain conversations we can dread as parents! Thank you, Ed, for this book and for not shying away from the hot topics but offering practical insights on how parents can navigate the big questions of the day. -- Andy Frost (Share Jesus International)

It’s been said that parenthood is sanctifying. I would add that it is also often downright paralyzing. Of course, it’s one of life’s greatest joys too. We who are parents and also Christ-followers want to get it just right. Ed Drew writes as a friend, a fellow parent and an experienced youth minister, who clearly loves Jesus and loves kids. This book is chock-full of anecdotes and practical ideas, of Scripture and reminders of God’s character, and of grace and truth. I’m so glad to have read it, and I heartily recommend it to all parents and anyone who loves children and teens. -- Jen Oshman (Author, Enough About Me)

No Christian should be allowed to have children without first being inspired and equipped by this wonderfully realistic and practical book! -- Ed Shaw (Pastor of Emmanuel City Centre, Bristol & Co-Founder of www.livingout.org)

This book is a must-read for every parent wanting to parent their child to navigate this life in light of eternity. Ed tackles some of the most pressing issues that parents face today with biblical insight and wisdom, and humour along the way. You may not agree with everything written in this book, but this book will prepare every parent to address pressing issues such as identity, friendships, gender, sexuality and marriage, with their child. -- Sandy Galea (MBM Children’s Minister, Rooty Hill Anglican, Sydney, Kidswise (www.kidswise.com.au))

There are so many reasons to love this book. It takes complicated Bible truths and applies them to the nitty-gritty of everyday parenting. It tackles the hardest and most confusing contemporary challenges and responds with measured, biblical wisdom. Filled with real-life stories that are told with insight and compassion (and much delightful humour), Ed Drew’s book is for parents who want to help their children build an identity in which confidence is rooted not in themselves but in the God who created them and the Saviour who came to redeem them. -- Steve Midgley (Executive Director, Biblical Counselling UK; senior minister, Christ Church, Cambridge)

Highly readable, this book is biblical but also honest about the modern challenges to modern parents. It is encouraging, challenging and comforting. It deals with godly and wise principles rather than detailed practical tips, and the chapters on gender and sexuality are a must. -- Debbie Hardyman

This book has achieved the rare thing of genuinely impacting my day-to-day practice as a parent. Ed Drew well illustrates the need in this cultural moment for parenting that moves beyond our basic protective instincts to build Christ-centred confidence and resilience in our kids. The gospel offers children resources and power to navigate the inevitable suffering and confusion that life holds—our parenting can bear witness to this! -- Rachel Wilson (Co-author of The Life You Never Expected)

This book offers parents a perfect (and rare) combination of biblical philosophy and present day practicality. Ed Drew relays the truth of Scripture in a way that filled my heart with affection for Christ, compassion for my children and gratitude for my own identity. He addresses the issues facing today’s kids with specificity, delicacy, courage and confidence, and he has left me feeling equipped to do the same. I laughed, cried, and whispered sincere thank-yous as I read. Words from this book are already taped to my mirror, shaping my responses to my kids and permeating my conversations with friends. I will return to its wisdom again and again. -- Abbey Wedgeworth (Author, Held)
