Summary

The New Strong-Willed Child follows on the heels of Dr. Dobson's phenomenal best seller Bringing Up Boys. It offers practical how-to advice on raising difficult-to-handle children and incorporates the latest research with Dr. Dobson's legendary wit and wisdom. The New Strong-Willed Child is being rushed to press for parents needing help dealing with sibling rivalry, adhd, low self-esteem, and other important issues. This book is a must-read for parents and teachers struggling to raise and teach children who are convinced they should be able to live by their own rules!


Author Notes

James C. Dobson was born in Shreveport, Louisiana on April 21, 1936. He received an undergraduate degree from Pasadena College and a Ph.D. in child development from the University of Southern California. He was an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of Southern California School of Medicine and on the attending staff of Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

He was founder and president of Focus on the Family, an organization that produces nationally broadcast radio programs on domestic issues, but is no longer affiliated with the organization because of significant philosophical differences with the new leadership. He is founder and president of Family Talk, a nonprofit organization that produces his radio program, Dr. James Dobson's Family Talk.

He is the author of more than 30 books dedicated to the preservation of the family including The New Dare to Discipline, Love for a Lifetime, When God Doesn't Make Sense, Life on the Edge, Love Must Be Tough, The New Strong-Willed Child, Marriage Under Fire, and Head Over Heels.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In 1978, Dr. James Dobson penned the surprise bestseller The Strong-Willed Child, which has spawned a veritable cottage industry of books on how to parent those children who are more, shall we say, tenacious than other kids. Now, Dobson updates his classic with The New Strong-Willed Child: Birth Through Adolescence. The book has been completely revised, one of its most cheering features being the stories of the hindsight that comes when strong-willed children grow to be confident and mature adults. (One young man handed Dobson a personalized poem that read, "Roses are red, violets are blue. When I was a kid, I got spanked 'cause of you.") Several families are profiled in the book, and Dobson elucidates which strategies seem to work best and which do not. He also draws on new research about "inborn temperaments" and ADHD, discussing this in the context of what the Bible says about the formation of personality.
