Week Two- Day Four Book Discussion Questions

JA and Dad  


Week 2 (Thursday) Looking at Chapter 5, “Chosen and Called”, Jeff talks about the struggles of raising a child with special needs and how there is so much to do and never enough time or resources to get it all done.

Do you struggle with this as well? What do you do to help alleviate that stress?

Jeff confides that initially, he was not ready to give up his own dreams and to realize that his life wasn't going to be the same as he planned. In what ways can you relate to this?

One page 58 Jeff shares that one of his biggest regrets is that he didn’t treasure the early years with Jon Alex because he was obsessed with trying to “fix” him.

  Is that something you struggled with as well? Share an example.

  Why do you think so many parents, especially dads, struggle with trying to “fix” their child?

  What is the result when we do that?
