As you chauffeur your children from one activity to another, do you sometimes feel like a gerbil on a wheel, unable to get off? In It's Your Kid, Not a Gerbil, psychologist Dr. Kevin Leman offers insight and solutions for creating a less stressed home life. Parents of children ages 2 - 18 will be helped to give up the impossible quest to make their children "succeed" and instead, create a scenario where their kids are more likely to adopt the values taught at home. Special features include sidebars in each chapter with tips and a "Good Question!" section with thought provoking queries.
Do you sometimes feel like a gerbil running on a wheel inside a cage as you scurry from place to place, chauffeuring your children from one endless activity to another? What if, for one moment, you could just step off of the wheel . . . and relax? How would you feel then? And what if that single moment could stretch into an hour, or even a whole day? Its Your Kid, Not a Gerbil will provide practical solutions and helpful insight to get off the activity wheel so that you can put your time and energies where they really count: in establishing strong character and a love for home and family that will serve your kids well for a lifetime.
