November Book Club: The Blessing of a Skinned Knee


For this month’s Kveller book club, we’re leaving the fiction on the shelf and checking out one of the favorite Jewish parenting books out there–
The Blessing of a Skinned Knee
by Dr. Wendy Mogel.

As the tagline says, this book is all about using traditional Jewish teachings to raise loving, self-reliant children. And who doesn’t want that? For a sneak peek of Dr. Mogel’s bestselling wisdom, check out the excerpts from the book that we have on Kveller, including her advice on respect, manners, overindulgence and overprotection.

We’ll be meeting here on the blog to discuss the book on Wednesday, November 28th. Until then, buy the book or if you’ve already read it, find your copy and brush up. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this Jewish parenting standard. Happy reading!

*Remember, if you purchase this book–or anything else–by using our link to Amazon, Kveller will receive a portion of the profits. What a mitzvah!*
