by Nicole O’Dell (Kregel)
There are conversations you know you need to have with your children but don’t know how. In her Hot Button series, Nicole O’Dell tactfully and intentionally tackles the tough topics, like drugs, dating and sexuality, that teens and preteens struggle with. Each book is organized into sections that address the importance of discussing each topic with your children, offer information and appropriate explanations related to each topic, and include something Nicole calls “Strategic Scenarios.” These are brief, lifelike situations with multiple choice responses and discussion points to continue the conversation with your children. Actions steps and check points in each chapter equip parents and guardians with other helpful tools.
How this brings more to life: Instead of avoiding the issues, train up your children in the way they should go.
