Item Description...
Overview
For parents who have been knocked to the floor by bad news and plastered to the ceiling by unwelcome surprises...here's a book to prop you up, scrape you down, and (believe it or not) help you laugh again. Bad news is bad enough. But bad news about your children carries a triple whammy of pain, worry, and "where did we go wrong!" An accident, an illness, an unwholesome lifestyle, a devastating decision-the truth about these awful events can turn your life upside down, isolate you from family and friends, drain you of hope, and overpower you with stress. If that's your experience right now, this book can be a lifesaver. Crammed with practical guidance and sanity-saving laughter, it's a gift of hope to you from "the queen of encouragement," Barbara Johnson and other men and women who are "out there on the dance floor of life, doing the lost-parent shuffle." Drawing on her personal experience, her years of ministering to parents in pain, and the letters she has received from hundreds of hurting (and healing) parents, Barbara Johnson shares: - what you can expect in the days ahead-and how to cope - what to do with your shock, pain, and guilt - how to find grace for your ongoing stress - how to love your kids without trying to "fix 'em" - how to find comfort and encouragement in scripture, friendship, and the knowledge that you're not alone - how to locate a support group-or start one of your own - how to pull together with your spouse-instead of letting your pain pull you apart She salts each chapter with wry observations, uplifting letters, sunny day-lifters, cartoons, and just-plain-funny one-liners-to lift your spirits and bring you comfort. Whether you're stuck on the ceiling, groping through the tunnel, smoldering in the fire, or down for the count, this book can keep you moving and even keep you laughing through your tears as you travel the rocky path from "Why me, Lord?" to "Thank you, Lord."

Excellent Pain Reliever  Feb 9, 2002
I read this book when my son was 17, I was a single Mom going through alot of pain, Barbara helped me to have faith and look to God for all of my trials. He was very rebellious but reading this book helped me to hang on, sometimes only by a thread. I must say, being at the brink of suicide, Barbara was my life-saver and best friend. I would read it over and over and a wave of peace would come over me, the book was written under the teaching of the Holy Spirit and I have read many of her other books and combined works, all of her writings have helped me immensely. They have helped me to see that I am not alone in my pain. God bless you Barbara. I even laughed when I thought I could not laugh, and alot of tears were shed, liquid prayers to God. You will love this book, especially if you are a Mother of teens who are rebellious.
 
Live with it  Feb 14, 2000
The funniest part was things that we as parents have all said to our children.Another persons opinion of our childrens choices has gotten to be too much of everyone's business. Makes you wonder what are they hiding. I sympathized with them all and then I thought they don't need my sympathy it isn't as if they are ax murderers. Respect each others choices
