When Kids Ask Hard Questions
Faith-Filled Responses for Tough Topics
Karen Ware Jackson
The world is a confusing and painful place for children (and adults). How do you respond faithfully to your kids’ big questions? Learn to craft faithful conversations and be better prepared to talk about the tough stuff with your kids. More than 30 essays from a diverse group of young Christian parents/pastors address today’s toughest topics, including gender, race, bullying, mental illness, death, divorce, money, technology, and generosity. When Kids Ask Hard Questions invites you to take a deep breath, create safe spaces for the hard conversations, and speak the truth in love. Each chapter includes a resource list for further exploration.
