This book holds a treasure chest of responses for parents to refer to when asked sticky, difficult questions.
Beginning after the introduction and first chapter (which is basically a summary of what it is to be a parent), each section poses a question children may ask.
Next are the discussions/answers, presented for each generalized age group or maturity level. (Preschool, Ages 5-10, and ages 11 and up.) I really like this feature because an answer you might give a four-year-old isn’t going to satisfy a preteen, as well as the reverse.
Each chapter closes with an ‘In a Nutshell’ section, which displays bullet points summarizing the chapter.
Answering Your Kids’ Toughest Questions is a great resource parents can resort to when they have difficulty finding the right words when their children inquire about tough subjects, such as sin, death, divorce, disasters, etc. Of course there are topics that kids might ask that aren’t covered in this book, but this is definitely a great starting point.

First Lines: Parenthood is such a strange thing. For many of us, it seems as though we had barely grown up and, before we knew it, helpless little strangers were relying on us for everything—their needs far exceeded having a place to live and food to eat.
