From the Publisher▼▲
If you've thought of selling two of your children and arranging a long-term loan of the third and an exciting evening with your spouse is no yelling in the background and no trips to the ER, then Have a Happy Family by Friday is just what the doctor ordered. Dr Kevin Leman, beloved international psychologist, parenting and relationship expert, provides the prescription for a 5-day action plan that really works to change your home from the stressful one it can be to a happy, emotionally healthy one that benefits every family member. What Dr. Leman did for parents in his New York Times' bestselling Have a New Kid by Friday, he does for the entire family in Have a Happy Family by Friday.
Using his trademark humor and commonsense psychology, Dr. Leman deals with the issues that can turn a home into a combat zone. He gives parents the tools to: communicate effectively in ways family members will listen; juggle the "Big 5" (time, priorities, activities, work, finances); navigate the perfect storm of toddlers, teenagers, and all ages in-between; tweak their roles at home; and make time together for lasting connections. Want a home that's filled with kindness, cooperation, love, and laughter? You can have it! With Dr. Leman's time-tested principles, you can have a family that learns together, plays together, and, even more, likes each other.
Whether you're married or single, you have it in your power to change your family's world. And it all starts with a simple principle: "Your kids don't care what you know until they know you care." Every member plays a vital part in the development and well-being of the family unit. All need to contribute in their own unique ways and be treated with love and respect. Is this kind of family life even possible? You bet! Join the millions of families who have already benefited from Dr. Leman's principles and reap the kind of rewards that last a lifetime.
