The Blessing of a Skinned Knee

Every parent hopes their child will be self-reliant, optimistic, and well mannered: which can be a challenge in our current culture. Dr. Wendy Mogel's The Blessing of a Skinned Knee offers a commonsense and down-to-earth approach to child rearing. Mogel encourages parents to slow down and value each moment and to enjoy the uniqueness of each child. She warns against parental pressure and over protectiveness and champions time-tested values of moderation. Although she draws strongly from her own Jewish faith, her wisdom is applicable to families of all beliefs.
