It happens to every parent. One day, you have a sweet son or daughter who loves to snuggle on the couch and who puts a smile on your face just by walking into the room.

Entering middle school is like stepping onto a different planet--for parent and child alike.

But with a little help from Dr. Leman, parents will be able to ride out the interstellar storm with humor and confidence.
