Dr. Leman: Parenting Your Powerful Child

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Leman, parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author, talks about his new book "Parenting Your Powerful Child."

In "Parenting Your Powerful Child," Dr. Leman uses his trademark humor and commonsense psychology as he offers hope and encouragement to those parenting a powerful child. 

Powerful kids don't just happen. They're created, and their power comes in different packages. Every family has a powerful child or two. 

Some are easy to pick out -- you can hear them from way down the block. Others you may not recognize as powerful, but they're master manipulators. Whether loud and temperamental, quiet and sensitive, or stubborn and manipulative, powerful children can make living with them a challenge. But it doesn't have to be that way. 

Dr. Leman explains how powerful children are created, what makes them tick, what makes them explode, and what a parent can do to change the power plays. He offers a practical action plan to transform your child's power surges into positive traits that will prepare him for a successful, happy, and productive adult life. 

With simple but effective techniques, you can transform your home from a daily battle zone to a safe and peaceful place. All it takes is a little determination-and some small changes on your part-to make a huge difference in your family life.
