As you chauffeur your children from one activity to another, do you sometimes feel like a gerbil on a wheel, unable to get off? It’s Your Kid, Not a Gerbil, offers insight and solutions for creating a less stressed home life. Parents of children ages 2 – 18 will be helped to give up the impossible quest to make their children “succeed” and instead, create a scenario where their kids are more likely to adopt the values taught at home. Special features include sidebars in each chapter with tips and a “Good Question!” section with thought provoking queries. You can purchase It’s Your Kid, Not A Gerbil in the Shop page!


  • Thank you Dr Leman for addressing this important topic! It is so easy to get stuck in the “gerbil wheel”, when all around you kids seems to be involved in a different activity every day after school because they need to be “well rounded” to get into college. I agree that kids need to find 1-2 things that they enjoy and that give them confidence as they begin to excel in those activities–but beyond that it is not only stressful for them, but it becomes very disruptive at home! Parents are stressed out about running from one activity to another, there is no time to spend together as a family, and lets not even discuss the financial aspect of signing up for everything under the sun. Again, I so appreciate you tackling this subject and for always encouraging us to use a common sense approach! Happy New Year!

  • I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into
    any web browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
