One of the foremost authorities on marriage, parenting and raising your children with authority without being an authoritarian, Dr. Kevin Leman, will be in Lubbock for the Relentless 2016 Marriage & Family Conference, Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30, 2016 at the Rock City Events Center, 5911 4th St.

The conference is free both days and child care is just $5 per child with a limit of three children per family.

Friday night's conference is from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and will focus on helping you understand the man or woman in your life with live music and appetizers also available.

Saturday's conference is from 9 a.m. to noon, with Dr. Leman sharing ways to parent the powerful child along with live music and a light breakfast.

Dr. Leman has been on Oprah Winfrey's show five times and was the marriage and parenting consultant on Good Morning America as well as currently being a guest on Fox News, CNN and The View.

He's also written countless books, many best-sellers, addressing marriage, parenting and even birth order.

So, how do you raise your kids depending on their birth order and the birth order of the parents? I asked Dr. Leman where I fit in the birth order. I have 4 four older brothers and two younger brothers and I'm the only girl. His response? "Oh my! Can I pray for your husband right now?"

Dr. Leman definitely has a great sense of humor as well as expertise. I also posed the situation of Lubbock wives asking their their husbands to attend the conference. His response is hysterical and dead-on.
