This is a remix of an earlier interview host Fred Opie did with Dr. Kevin Leman a New York Times best-selling author, and a psychologist who has worked with professional and collegiate athletic teams across the country. In the first half of the show they talk about how to let your student athlete child who’s being recruited choose the right college, how to discern coaches who care about more than winning and who will mentor your child the right way instead of exploit their athletic talent to advance their career. In the second half of the show Dr. Leman delves into what he calls reality parenting with an emphasis on being in authority and not authoritarian in your child’s life. Dr. Leman is a native of Buffalo New York and resides in Arizona where he is a big time University of Arizona sports supporter who has worked closely with coaches and student athletes. He and his wife raised five children. Dr. Leman has appeared on every morning show of note on television and radio. His most recent book is entitled planet middle school which is a Fred Opie favorites for parents of middle school age children like his own.
