Fear is very real in the lives of children from hard places. In fact, fear often ‘bullies’ our children into much of their misbehavior. As a result, it is critical that parents of children from hard places approach fear and fear-driven behaviors with compassion, insight and wisdom.
Watch as Dr. Purvis explains the impact of fear and how parents can begin to help their children learn to trust and let go of fear.
For more insight about the impact of fear, read Chapter 4 (Disarming the Fear Response) of The Connected Child, as well as Chapter 4 of Created To Connect: A Christian’s Guide to The Connected Child.
