A bestselling phenomenon among parents and educators, this book is the essential guide that offers an inspiring new roadmap for raising children. Wendy Mogel’s sage reflections on raising children in a world where entitlement and competition abound have struck a chord with thousands of readers. In a culture whose values are often at odds with the ones parents wish to uphold and instill, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee points the way to raising self–reliant, compassionate and ethical 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 such as:

  • 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
  • Helping your child develop independence and self-control
