Children as victors, not victims

In a climate of great public concern for the safety and well-being of children, parents are discovering the excellent care and protection they are able to provide their families through reliance on God alone. This care flows from an understanding of God and His laws, and is demonstrable in health, safety, and peace of mind. Families who have experienced genuine Christian healing have recognized that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Ps. 46:1).

Growing up in a major city, our four children have been confronted right in their own schools with vandalism, theft, and racial conflict. Suburban and rural communities are dealing with these problems, too. We parents can't be with our children every minute. As they grow, how do we help them understand that they need never be victims of impositions, such as theft, loss, or anger?
