Item description for Home Court Advantage: Preparing Your Children to Be Winners in Life (Focus on the Family) by Kevin Leman...

Overview
Ask today's parents how they spend their time, and they're likely to say, "Working and driving the kids to their activities." The modern reality is that well-meaning parents are working long hours and then signing their kids up for every available activity: music lessons, ballet, choir, one or two sports a season, and academic enrichment programs. The result is that kids spend the majority of their time with--and consequently being raised by--teachers, day care providers, coaches, and peers. Home Court Advantage points to a richer philosophy of parenting and gives practical pointers on how to achieve it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Home Court Advantage: Preparing Your Children to Be Winners in Life (Focus on the Family)?

"Home Court Advantage" gives you the advantage  Jul 6, 2008
I was looking for some practical advise on raising kids and I found it. I enjoyed the authors humor, stories about raising his own kids and his practical advise. I would recommend this book to parents.
 
Very well written book on the importance of family.  Oct 5, 2007
This book challenges you to rethink our culture that says your children must be involved in 100 activities out of the home. Gives neat ideas of how to create family traditions and memories with your child.
 
Good book  Jun 27, 2007
I thought this was a good book but it would have been alot better if he would have told it in his own voice. He has a much better fluctuation and expressiion than the guy who read this one for the audio. But overall really good book.
 
Home Court Advantage-A Sanity Check for Today's Family  Mar 9, 2006
I really enjoyed this book because it was full of practical parenting tips and Dr. Leman is not shy about what he recommends for healthy family strategies. The greatest benefit to me was that it caused me to review my own family's priorities and perhaps look at spending more time at home and less time "on the road". Whatever your religious orientation, this book is a must read; there is something for everyone and a good couples read too. (I could live without the Opie stories--a little boring and dated, I thought.)
 
Much needed relief for busy parents  Mar 3, 2006
Finally I have relief from the guilt of not having my son involved in every sport and activity there is to be offered. I am a single mom and find it very hard to keep up with the standards society has created. Dr. Leeman has confirmed that simply sitting down and reading a book with your child will do them more good than shuffling them off to some activity. I recommend this book for all parents and plan to pass it along to all of my other friends who are struggling with the same issues.
