Turning Junk Into Jewels: Learning to Deal with the Hurts of Life

Unfortunately, we typically stumble into patterns of responding, and some may cause more pain and harm than the original hurt we encountered.
Parent's greatest gift to their children is to teach them to deal with hurt in healthy ways and yet they may not know how themselves. Instead parents want to spare their children from all pain, but they cannot.
