Book Jacket:

Is a willful little darling driving you to distraction? Are you wondering where you went wrong as a parent? You may have a stong-willed child...

They come into the world smoking a cigar and yelling about the temperature in the delivery room. As toddlers, their greatest delights include painting the carpet with Mom's makeup and trying to flush the family cat down the toilet. As older children and teenagers, they are irritable, defiant, and seemingly bent on challenging all forms of authority.

Challenging as they are to raise, strong-willed children can grow up to be men and women of strong character--if lovingly guided with understanding and the right kind of discipline.

In The New Strong-Willed Child, Dr. James Dobson offers practical how-tos on raising one of these little powerhouse, drawing on up-to-date researcha nd years of experience advising families.
