It's Your Kid Not a Gerbil- book review and GIVEAWAY

I just love the title of this book!  It's Your Kid Not a Gerbil was written by Dr. Kevin Leman.  Dr. Leman has written many books on children and parents.  He has a way with words and it was a fun book to read.  Obviously from the title you can figure out what the book is going to deal with and I think most families will find the book a help. 
Do you sometimes feel like a gerbil running on a wheel inside a cage as you scurry from place to place, chauffeuring your children from one endless activity to another? What if, for one moment, you could just step off of the wheel . . . and relax? How would you feel then? And what if that single moment could stretch into an hour, or even a whole day? It’s Your Kid, Not a Gerbil will provide practical solutions and helpful insight to get off the activity wheel so that you can put your time and energies where they really count: in establishing strong character and a love for home and family that will serve your kids well for a lifetime.
I know most people who have kids have felt at one time or another that they are just running from activity to activity with no real purpose- I felt that way last school year, even though we homeschool it's still easy to get caught up in every activity under the sun.  This year we are not doing as much running around!  Most times my kids would rather stay home and play than run and do errands anyway.
I recommend this book for everyone.  It's well written and has many helps throughout the book.
One reader is going to win a gift certificate to receive a free copy of the book It's Your Kid Not a Gerbil.  All you have to do is comment.  Tell me why you would like to read this book.  One comment per person.  I will choose a winner using Random.org.  The winner will be notified by email.  The giveaway will run through September 15th and end at 11:00 p.m. est.  Open to USA residents only.
***Disclaimer*** I was not paid for this review.  I was given a free copy in exchange for review.  I was also sent a free gift certificate to give to a reader.  Thanks to Tyndale!

I try to be careful about over-scheduling, but now that we are entering the school years, I know it will be much harder. Sounds like a good (and much-needed) book.
