Are you an expert at finding flaws within yourself?

Do you tend to procrastinate, set unrealistic goals, or continually try to please others?

Do you have to "push" your children to get them to do anything?

Writing in his warm and direct style, Dr. Kevin Leman shows you how to value your talents and gifts and accept your shortcomings. He shows how the way you develop as a child affects your behavior as an adult and explains how, regardless of the past, anyone can pursue a healthy lifestyle today. Dr. Leman even shows you how to apply these same principles in raising children with healthy self-esteem in order to break the cycle of perfectionism.

If you want to make a positive change in your life, this is the place to start.
