When Good Kids Make Bad Choices: Help and Hope for Hurting ParentsBy: Elyse Fitzpatrick, James Newheiser
There is perhaps no greater fear in a parentÃ¯Â¿Â½s heart than the thought that a muchÃ¯Â¿Â½loved and wellÃ¯Â¿Â½caredÃ¯Â¿Â½for 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.
