Your child is out of control and you don’t know why. You’ve listened to all the standard tips. You’ve read more parenting books than you can count. You’re frustrated, tired, and at the end of your rope.

ParentLeaders takes a fresh approach to childrearing—an effective approach. It works because it’s not about parenting per se, but about leadership. Rather than reciting the tired tips and tricks you already know by heart, Jan and Dwight Trabue show you how to:

  • kick-start your own personal growth
  • maintain a winning attitude in the face of adversity
  • motivate your kids
  • maintain an appropriate balance of power
  • … and more

We all know that leadership makes a difference in the workplace and the community. Why not learn to harness the power of leadership in your own home? It will be the best investment you can make for yourself … and your children.
