Blake Le Vine and his mother Suzanne Wachtel are not the typical social workers. Together they battled and conquered Suzanne's horrible divorce, Blake being kidnapped, his near fatal battle with bipolar disorder and ultimately attended and finished graduate school together. "Like Mother, Like Son" is an inspirational book that offers new strategies that work when raising children. These techniques will help you to handle situations that determine whether or not your children will survive. The book covers important parenting topics from success in school, dealing with divorce, handling learning disabilities, mental illness, peer pressure and discipline strategies that work. In this book, you will learn about a 'sex-sit down', the four essential rules of parenting, how to receive and give respect to your children, and to understand how many parents face severe parenting problems.
