Publisher's Summary

Children today live in an unpredictable, disruptive, and often violent world. Many of them live in two different homes with different sets of expectations. They face bullying at school and online. They hear news of school shootings, and racially or religiously motivated violence. They may have lost a friend or a loved one. 

As parents, the impulse to protect our children is strong, but that very protection can end up handicapping them for life. Rather than seek to save them from the hard things, parents must teach their kids how to cope with and rise above their problems. In one of his most important books to date, internationally known psychologist and best-selling author, Dr. Kevin Leman, teaches parents how to:

  • Be good listeners
  • Tell the truth, even when it's difficult
  • Find balance between being protective and being overprotective
  • Approach hurt and injustice as a learning experience rather than fostering a victim mentality
  • And much more

Whether your child is dealing with a difficult family situation, bullies, the loss of friends, the death of a loved one, discrimination, abuse, a teen pregnancy, or even just trying to make sense of what they see in the news, this compassionate and practical book will help parents equip them to process, learn from, and rise above their situation.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

So helpful for so many situations

I love hearing Information on so many different kids from so many different walks of life.I feel like, even when this doesn’t apply to me or my family, the book has great advice that I can offer to other parents who May be distressed about a situation that their family is going through. As I made my way through the book, I found myself using stories, examples, and information from this book to help my kids with the situation that they might have been in that day, or perhaps when they would tell me about another student that was going through a rough time. With three kids, someone always has drama, almost every day, so I found this book very helpful.
