A Game Changer


I have been realizing for a while, that I needed to freshen up my parenting skills. I'm not ashamed to say, that I've been running into a few walls lately. With two teenage girls, it became very clear that I was going to have to up my parenting game. The same techniques that had worked with our oldest child, were not working for our girls. I knew that something had to change and it had to change fast.

I found myself on the 'Focus On The Family' website and began listening to a podcast featuring Dr. Leman. I knew that his techniques would be a good fit for our family and would, if not totally solve our issues, would certainly go a long way in helping. 

By reading the title, you come away with the impression that your child is going to change in a few days, nope, it's you  that's going to change. In order for my child to respond to me differently, I have to parent differently. 

It's not easy, at all,  I'm telling you, it's hard to change bad habits, especially when you parent the way you do often times because that's how you were parented as a child. But let me tell you, it's the greatest feeling in the world to know that you can  change and can  do a better job being a parent to your children. Our children deserve the very best we can give them and sometimes that means doing the hard.

This book is awesome and is changing the way my husband and I parent our children. We've seen changes in our family just in the first two weeks of implementing Dr. Leman's advice. I highly recommend this book!
