Dr. Kevin Leman, a professional marriage counselor and a father of five, introduces “Reality Discipline” – a no-nonsense approach based on parental authority and common sense. Addressing specific situations and using examples from his own family life, Dr. Leman shows how to deal with temper tantrums, finicky eating, sibling fights, lack of responsibility and misbehaving. He helps you to understand why children behave in a certain way and what you can do to correct their behavior while at the same time letting them know that you love them and care for them. Seemingly harsh measures like throwing out the dinner when the child refuses to eat will work much better than yelling or bargaining. If the child sees that he or she will not have a chance to exasperate you by whining about their dinner for a good half hour, they will soon stop attempting to.
