When our youngest child punched two kids in the junk within an 18-hour period, I questioned whether I could have done anything to prevent it. To be honest, I hadn’t thought to tell my children directly not to punch people in the junk. It wasn’t a message that I imagined I would have to state with the straightforwardness of instructions like, “Don’t talk with your mouth full.”
Don’t Punch People in the Junk: (Seemingly) Obvious Life Lessons to Teach Kids is an ode to those obvious life lessons that we not only have to teach directly to children, but that we, as adults, can often miss through the course of everyday life. The lessons in this book are ideal for those who work with children, have raised them safely to adulthood, or are currently attempting to parent them without going insane. Don’t Punch People in the Junk: (Seemingly) Obvious Life Lessons to Teach Kids is a collection of humorous stories exploring the journey of parenthood.
