The world in which children are growing up is full of uncertainties and challenges. Pressures from peers, pressure to perform or achieve, fears about their life, and stress about the future can trouble young minds. As parents, it can be hard to know how help our children navigate their emotions in an unstable world, while still holding on to hope and truth.
Through six helpful tips, Eliza Huie, experienced parent and Christian counselor, offers practical advice and biblical support for parents seeking to support their children through deep emotional waters. With care, gentleness, and compassion, Eliza explains how parents can give their children grace-filled responses that will point to God’s faithfulness in all the emotional ups and downs of life.

“There is no manual on parenting. We are told 'congratulations!' and 'good luck' and then are left to figure it out on our own. Eliza Huie's book Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids is the closest thing we have to a manual! It is insightful, practical, and engaging and will provide you with the essential tools to equip your children. A must read!”
