About the Book
Parenting Is a High-Wire Act.
Fear is a God-given instinct, compelling you to protect your children, but you need to harness it wisely. It’s all a question of balance. On the one hand, you want to protect your children from life’s real dangers. On the other hand, you don’t want to smother them. The drop below can sometimes seem terrifying, but Allie Pleiter assures you that you can make it safely across the high-wire of raising your kids. You can be alert to life’s dangers without being paralyzed by them.
With humor, clarity, and plenty of personal examples, Pleiter explores the fears, both rational and irrational, that moms experience every day raising their children. Facing Every Mom’s Fear brims with true-life stories from other moms and expert advice from the fields of social work, family therapy, psychiatry, and psychology. Best of all, this book digs deep into the Bible to help you meet your fears head-on with faith in God, the ultimate, ever-watchful parent. Learn how to embrace your fear and make it work for you. The courage you seek is already inside you, the balancing act is exciting and worth the risk—and you and your children will benefit.
