Parenting Your Powerful Child Part 3 of 3

Bits of wisdom from Parenting Your Powerful Child: Bringing an End to the Everyday Battles by Dr. Kevin Leman.

Proverbs 9:10 (HCSB)

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

From pages 256-257 of Parenting Your Powerful Child:

20171210_155635When things get stressful in your home, you can always break the ice by having fun. Just as an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a dose of fun keeps the family together. Remember, your kids are kids. They need fun every single day.

So do you.

…powerful kids can be shaped to become powerful influencers who help others…


Change is not only possible but highly probable for powerful kids. All it takes is someone like you to believe in them and to help transform their attention-seeking, power-driven behavior into determination that doesn’t give up until a task is accomplished.

Then, they’ll go far.

Just watch them.
