I enjoy reading and listening to Kevin Leman. He has a no nonsense approach to parenting, but he is also extremely funny, which I appreciate. When given the opportunity to read and review his book "It's Your Kid Not a Gerbil," I was excited to see what he had to say.
In this book, Leman has a way of taking the pressure off of parents who feel like we will cause damage to our children if we don't have them involved in every activity under the sun. Do you ever feel like you are a gerbil running on the wheel and you just want off? There have been times in my own life where I have said, "Stop the world! I want to get off!" While I want my children to be well-rounded, I don't want to extend our activities to the point of putting undue pressure to perform on my children.
Leman reminds parents that our job is to raise children that will adopt the values they learned at home and become productive members of society. He gives tips and advice on how to create a less stressful environment at home ~ who wouldn't want that?! If you are a parent, you need to read this book!
