The Blessing of a Skinned Knee
Internationally known clinical psychologist Wendy Mogel’s sage reflections on parenting in a world where entitlement and competition abound have struck a chord with readers across the globe. The Blessing of a Skinned Knee points the way to raising self–reliant, exuberant and compassionate children.
With warmth and humor, Mogel distills the wisdom of the Torah, the Talmud, and important Jewish teachings, as well as contemporary psychological insights, into nine “blessings” that address key parenting issues including: teaching respect for adults, chores, keeping expectations in line with your child’s temperament, meal-time battles, coping with frustration, avoiding over-scheduling and overindulgence, and helping your child develop independence and self-control.
