We will be discussing The Blessing of a Skinned Knee: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Self-Reliant Childrenby Wendy Mogel.
Mogel, a clinical psychologist, left her practice in order "to help parents look at their children's anxieties and desires using a different lens." Digging into the rich traditions of the Torah, the Talmud and other Jewish teachings, Mogel builds a parenting blueprint that draws on core spiritual values relevant to families. With warmth and humor, she offers strategies for encouraging respect and gratitude in children. Her thoughtful observations consistently illuminate and reassure.
Have a great suggestion for the mini-book club to read and discuss?
