“It’s Okay to Cry”: a compendious account that educates caregivers and concerned individuals on ways on how to discern if a child is abused and how they can help them cope with life. “It’s Okay to Cry” is the creation of published author Marie Tucker, a writer for ‘Children’s Ministry Magazine’; a children’s ministry leader at Delaware Valley Baptist Church in Willingboro, New Jersey; and an authorized Evangelical Training Association teacher in advanced studies.
Tucker shares, “What do you do if you suspect that a child is being abused? What signs do you look for, and how can you help? How can you prevent a blended family from being a broken family? Suppose your child is being bullied in school, or worse, suppose your child is the bully. Who comforts the child during the time of family illness or death, and how can you encourage them? We are living in a time when violence against children is at an all-time high. Much of it comes from the hands of a frustrated parent or someone being careless with a gun.
“A report by the US Department of Health and Human Services issued in 2017 states that approximately 3.5 million children were the subject of at least one report of child maltreatment or abuse. That same year, approximately 1,720 children actually died from abuse and neglect. Black, White, and Hispanic cultures are all affected.
“‘It’s Okay to Cry’ is a handy tool for parents, children’s ministry volunteers, and others who are serving children as they work through some of those difficult times in their lives. Some of those tools include signs to know if a child might be in an abusive situation and what you can do to help. Inside, you will not only find ways to help your own child but other children as well. Also included are Bible verses and stories that will encourage, inspire, and instruct.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Marie Tucker’s new book also focuses on the importance of faith and spirituality in uplifting children from pain and leading them to a state of healing and renewed purpose.
This illuminating book desires to prove the best care and attention to children, especially those who are caught in a life of constant abuse and disrepair.
