The Family First Workbook
Specific Tools, Strategies, and Skills for Creating a Phenomenal Family
Dr. Phil wants to help parents get their priorities back in order by putting family at the center of their lives. Families don't have to suffer through mediocrity because of parents who don't communicate and children who act out because they aren't receiving the right balance of guidance and discipline. You can shape your household into a functional, supportive, stimulating and safe place -- a place that you and your kids are happy to call home.
With innovative individual and group exercises, challenging self-appraisals, a Daily Intention Journal, specific guidelines on managing conflict, special material for divorced and blended families, and much more, the workbook will show you how to be the best role model, guide and advocate for your child.
Dr. Phil makes you ask yourself the hard questions, and he reveals the hard truths. You are raising America's future; you must invest the time and energy to do it right. The reward -- a happy, fulfilled home life that lets your children thrive -- will be well worth the work.
