Best known as The Family Coach, Dr. Lynne Kenney shows parents of children ages 3 to 8 (the critical years for developing values and behavior patterns) how to create specific, foundational life skills that will stay with children through good times and bad.

Combining the practicality of Supernanny with the creative problem solving of a super sleuth, Dr. Kenney helps busy families of young children identify core values and create long-term, practical child-rearing strategies that work with a minimum of time investment. She gives parents the words and actions to teach their children how to grow into independent, confident, compassionate, accountable kids.

The Family Coach Method is a friendly, illustrated how-to manual of strategies, tips, real-life stories and solid support, structured for quick reference. Filled with age-appropriate sample conversations and problem solving scenarios, the book guides a family to a place of mutual respect, shared values and strengths: a winning team.
