ABOUT THE BOOK
There are some things adults just can’t do for kids.
You can’t force a toddler to love broccoli. You can’t make a teenager not date someone. And you can’t make a kid love God. At some point, it just starts to break down.
Two books in one, Playing for Keeps—Losing Your Marbles is for parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers).
In Playing for Keeps, you will discover six things every kid needs over time and 18 practical ideas so you can make what really matters matter more. Losing Your Marbles, the “flipside” of Playing for Keeps, is a short story that brings these six ideas to life.
