When Good Kids Make Bad Choices

Help and Hope for Hurting Parents


There is perhaps no greater fear in a parent’s heart than the thought that a much-loved and well-cared-for child will make bad choices or even become a prodigal.

What are parents to do in such circumstances? Authors Jim Newheiser and Elyse Fitzpatrick speak from years of personal experience as both parents and biblical counselors about how hurting parents can deal with the emotional trauma of when a child goes astray. They offer concrete hope and encouragement along with positive steps parents can take even in the most negative situations.

Includes excellent advice from Dr. Laura Hendrickson regarding medicines commonly prescribed to problem children, and offers questions parents can ask pediatricians before using behavioral medications. A heartfelt and practical guide for parents.

“In their comforting and practical book, When Good Kids Make Bad Choices, the authors (Elyse Fitzpatrick, Jim Newheiser, and Laura Hendrickson) come alongside hurting parents with a compassion that can only be obtained through like suffering.  They gently expose the feelings of hurt, isolation, and anger that often accompany this situation and offer no easy answers, but hope in Christ.  This is an invaluable resource for hurting parents and for those who help them.”

“We have read this book aloud together and have received comfort and conviction in equal measures.  It is our desire that every parent in our local church read this landmark work before their children enter adolescence because the counsel contained in this book not only offers comfort to those who are hurting in the wake of problems with wayward children, it also offers clear and concise counsel on how to spot and deal with problems before they reach the level of crisis.  Thank you for a long overdue resource.”
