Fear Factor in Parenting: We Dread Seeing Our Children Suffer, with Tish Harrison Warren

Even as we know that this life is hard, parents dread the suffering of their children. In this episode of the Rooted Parent Podcast, Tish Harrison Warren joins Cameron and Anna to talk about preparing our kids to suffer and how to help them when they are grieving.

Tish Harrison Warren expands on thoughts from her most recent book Prayer in the Night: For Those Who Work, or Watch, or Weep, especially the prayer of parents who long for God to “shield the joyous” and protect their kids in their suffering.

Warren is also the author of Christianity Today’s 2018 book of the year Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life. An Anglican priest, wife. and mother of three, Warren writes a weekly newsletter for The New York Times.
