Answering Your Kid's Toughest Questions: Helping Them Understand Loss, SIn, Tragedies, and Other Hard Topics
Elyse Fitzpatrick & Jessica Thompson
The Honest, Loving Answers Children Need to Hear
It's not easy to know what to say when a child asks about a dying grandma, or the reality of the devil, or some act of violence featured on the news. But ignoring the questions won't help. Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter Jessica Thompson carefully walk parents through these difficult conversations, one topic at a time. These experienced moms will come alongside readers, offering helpful hints and age-appropriate guidelines on how much to share and when. And most importantly, they teach how to answer children in a way that points back to the truth of God's amazing love.
