Dave Staal brings his experience as a parent and a nationally respected children’s ministry leader to help equip other parents and mentors to teach their children the most important lessons in life. With a dozen life-building lessons, parents and mentors will be able to teach their kids to have a balanced, healthy perspective about themselves and other people, and how to honor God with the way they live. Based on Staal’s own experiences as a parent as well as original research done nationwide through focus groups with parents and children, Lessons Kids Need to Learn is a valuable resource for parents, grandparents, teachers, children’s ministry workers, and mentors who care about teaching children how to live into their God-given identities.
