Just Like His Father?
A Guide to Overcoming Your Child’s Genetic Connection to Antisocial Behavior, Addiction and ADHD
By Liane J. Leedom, M.D.
If you’ve realized, to your horror, that you’ve had a child with a sociopath, what do you do? Research shows that the traits that can lead to sociopathy are highly genetic. How do you prevent your child from growing up to be another sociopath?
This was exactly the situation faced by Dr. Liane Leedom, a board-certified psychiatrist. When her son was six months old, she realized that his father had the personality disorder. She spent the next three years researching the scientific literature, learning how sociopathy develops, and how to prevent it.
The result is this book, Just Like His Father? In it, Dr. Leedom explains how to nurture the at-risk child. The key is being appropriately responsive to the child, which will enhance your child’s ability to love. Dr. Leedom provides practical guidance for every stage of a child’s life, from birth through the teenage years.
Even if your child is not at risk, the book offers excellent parenting advice to help your child grow up to be healthy and happy.
