Product Description

Do you have an aggressive child who talks back or who's stubborn and manipulative? Dr. Leman offers a fail-safe plan to help you transform those "power surges" into positive urges. What if that innate power can be redirected to develop your child's natural talents? Showing how to harness that energy, he reveals why challenging children behave as they do, the role genes and environment play, and tips for grace-based parenting. Well known for using humor mixed with down-to-earth psychology, Dr. Leman encourages parents and explains that all it takes is determination, persistence, willpower, and advice that works.

Parents will learn how powerful children are created, what makes them tick, what makes them explode, and what they can do to change the power plays . . . for the good of the entire family. All it takes is determination, persistence, willpower, and advice that works--guaranteed.

    Another life-saving book

    Dr. Kevin Leman provides another life-saving book in "Parenting Your Powerful Child", a book that any parent can benefit from reading. Written in his signature easy-to-read style, and chock-full of practical advice, Leman's latest book will help parents act with authority, "not as an authoritarian or permissive parent". I think what I most appreciated about this book is that the author includes story after story of real life parenting situations, anecdotes that readers will no doubt read and think "Hooray! I'm not alone!" While all of us would like to pretend that we are perfect parents, the truth, of course, is that we are not (I hope I didn't shock anyone). Dr. Leman draws on years of experience to help give parents confidence on how to handle the most extreme of behaviours. The book is very well laid out, and can be read in one sitting or over a period of time if it is easier for you to glean the truth from its pages in small doses. Leman writes in a non-judgmental way, and yet he doesn't hesitate to give you advice on exactly what to do to remedy a challenge you are having with your child. I really appreciated the "What you can do" sections that provide clear and easy to follow guidance.

    If you are tearing out your hair trying to deal with your child, or perhaps you just want to learn some new parenting strategies to keep things going well, then plan on picking up a copy of "Parenting Your Powerful Child". You'll be glad you did! 4.5 out of 5 stars.
