Is a willful little darling driving you to distraction? The New Strong-Willed Child is the resource you need—a classic bestseller completely rewritten, updated, and expanded for a new generation of parents and teachers. Challenging as they are to raise, strong-willed children can grow up to be men and women of strong character—if lovingly guided with understanding and the right kind of discipline. Find out what Dr. James Dobson, today’s most trusted authority on parenting, has to say about what makes strong-willed children the way they are; shaping the will while protecting the spirit; avoiding the most common parenting mistake; and much more. If you are struggling to raise and teach children who are convinced they should be able to live by their own rules, The New Strong-Willed Child is a must-read! (This new edition is part of Dr. James Dobson’s Building A Family Legacy initiative.)


  • Great Book

    By TheAdventurer
    I have a strong willed child, and this book comes with great wisdom and advice. Recommend for any parent dealing with a strong will child.
  • Life changing!!!

    By Raunchytowel
    I highly recommend this book. It's changed the way we run our household and also the life of my youngest. This book isn't just for parents of strong willed children but for all parents. Not religious? There isn't an over powering amount of God-speak.... The messages and lessons in this book are priceless. This book has given me a hope in raising my little ones that I had thought died out. The techniques or tools provided actually work!! They work immediately!! I noticed changes in my children-all of them-from the moment I started reading this book (though I have to admit that I didn't set it down until chapter 4 or 5). I look forward to reading Dare to Discipline and Raising Boys.
  • A must read

    This has been my "handbook" for the past few weeks as we have entered the season of "Kindergarden"! This book was so intriguing, literally filled with divine wisdom... I could not put it down! I am more equipped as a Mother because of the knowledge shared. James Dobson is brilliant to say the least, my family is so thankful for this faithful servant!

    James Dobson is n amazing person. This book made me feel for the first time that I was not the only mom dealing with a strong willed child. I actually cried because so many of the moms in this book are going through the same thing. A strong willed child is just more of everything. But this book gave me hope. Hope that there is always a new day and that my child is not abnormal just strong willed.
