Research has shown that the primary cause of divorce is incompatibility. In Help Your Child Make Friends and Be a Friend: Nurturing Lifetime Relationships, family counselor Dr. Richard Brown shows that children who know how to choose truly compatible friends have an excellent chance of someday selecting a compatible lifelong marriage partner.
Beginning with an exercise that identifies parents' and children's unique personality skills and needs, Dr. Brown examines the psychological changes children experience as they move through elementary and high school. He gives special attention to helping teens understand and intelligently cope with falling-in-love experiences.
But marital success is about more than finding a compatible partner. Personality differences arise in every relationship, and Dr. Brown shows how to handle them with four behaviors modeled by Jesus: servanthood, use of the intellect, speaking out, and forgiveness.
Help Your Child Make Friends and Be a Friend is an invaluable resource faith-filled parents will turn to again and again as they help their children navigate the journey to adulthood.
