Parenting Your Powerful Child
"Powerful kids don't just happen, they're created." With that simple statement, you know that you're in for an examination of parenting that is likely to be uncomfortable at times. If that examination is uncomfortable, it's because your life has probably already become uncomfortable due to a child who has become powerful - perhaps to your bewilderment. How did this happen? "There are lots of ways to be powerful. Some are easy to spot because they are overly demonstrative. But those who use subtle control are just as manipulative and powerful." Carefully examining the situations that parents find themselves in while parenting and identifying the danger signs of power running amok in children, author Dr. Kevin Leman demonstrates great understanding, spiritual discernment, and wisdom. Full of practical suggestions and guidelines, he doesn't leave the wondering parent uncertain of what to do now. He recognizes the necessity of raising up these powerful children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. 267 pgs. pb ~ Janice
