Parents today find it harder than ever to uphold their own values within their families when they seem so at odds with those of our current culture. We seek security in a society that seems more and more dangerous, grace in a culture that thrives on competition, and gratitude in an age of ever-increasing materialism. How can this generation of parents raise self-reliant, compassionate, and ethical children?
Drawing on the wisdom of the Torah, the Talmud, and important Jewish teachings, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee provides the answer. Using a framework of nine "blessings," Mogel provides parents with a new set of priorities, helping to ease apprehension while creating a positive feeling about the future.
