Book Description

March 1 2008
Anyone who has dealt with a strong-willed child knows that it is no easy task to turn bad behavior around. But the popularity of TV programs like Supernanny and Nanny 911 shows that parents have had it up to here and are ready to try anything to get their children to behave. Bestselling author and psychologist Dr. Kevin Leman is here to help.
Have a New Kid by Friday shows parents how to reverse negative behavior in their children--fast! With his signature wit and encouragement, Dr. Leman offers hope and real, practical, doable strategies for regaining control and becoming the parents they always wanted to be. Focusing on changing a child's attitude, behavior, and character, it contains chapters for each day of the week and a special section with advice on everything from rolling eyes to sibling rivalry to talking back to punching walls and much, much more. This large section of more than 100 specific topics is indexed, allowing parents to flip immediately to any areas of concern for witty, straightforward, and gutsy plans of action.

This book is no nonsense clear and practical. What makes it brilliant is that it gives the parents great ideas that are actually effective. It also calls the parent to a higher standard of parenting that does not include any bullying or yelling.

If you want to help out your kids and you..buy this book immediately!

5.0 out of 5 stars I was suprised at the changes that took place Nov. 21 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book is amazing. I have recommended it to many parents. It helped me figure out why I was so frustrated with my children. I saw how I was part of the problem; I wasn't following through with consequences. I have learned how to set boundaries, allow my child to experience the "reality" of their choices,and see the importance of keeping track of misbehavior. I started to write notes to myself so that I would remember to say "no" when they asked for something.I am now experiencing a respecful relationship with my children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a book with practical suggestions July 23 2009
Format:Paperback
I love Dr Leman's straightforward, pull no punches way of writing.

And finally, a book that actually has real-life examples and suggestions of what to do. So many books are so abstract, but this one has example after example - which is something I needed.

Excellent book.
