Item description for What Kids Wish Parents Knew about Parenting by Joe White...
Overview (When placing your order, please mention that this is a Lightining Source book.) Best-selling author and family expert Joe White writes a sobering book for this most serious of times. Children are being exposed to dangers outside the home that most parents are unaware of until they accidentally find some shred of evidence-a cigarette butt, a half-smoked joint, or an obscene letter from an unknown lover. Kids are feeling lonely, ugly, unaccepted, and scared. While smiling on the outside, they often feel deserted on the inside-even by their parents. White's insights into parenting and what kids really want from their parents will change not only how Christians think about their families but how they treat and raise the priceless jewels God has placed in their care. This is not a feel-good, no brainer book. This is a convicting, how-to book on raising children in homes of faith, love, security, and commitment.
Publishers Description It's an alarming moment when it dawns on parents that their child is in trouble. And if you aren't perceptive you may never know until you find a half-smoked marijuana joint in a jeans pocked on laundry day or a sexy love note left inadvertently on a dresser or a citation from the police. In times like these, when children are making adult decisions that are often devastatingly destructive, parents must examine the facts and learn how to be what their kids need them to be before it's too late.
