Wouldn't-you-like-to-have-more-fun-as-a-parent?Your kids are misbehaving, not listening, and melting down. You’re frustrated, overwhelmed, and ready to scream.

We’ve all been there!

It’s exhausting getting them ready for bed. And a struggle getting them out each morning. 

Wouldn’t You Like to Make Parenting More Fun?

ParentingLet’s Make a Game of It entertains as well as inspires “out-of-the-box” thinking for turning parenting into a game. Through light-hearted stories, you’ll learn playful ways to stop struggling with your child and start having more fun.

By using games to deal with everyday frustrating moments, you’ll avoid confrontations, end arguments, encourage cooperation, and even get kids to help around the house.

The Results are Amazing!

  • You’ll have more fun as a parent.
  • You’ll empower your kids.
  • And your family will spend more quality time connecting.

Unlike most parenting books, which are boring, this one is easy to read and entertaining. Instead of recommending consequences or rewards, this book teaches you how to create games to encourage desired behaviors in your children.
— Mark Thomas

Like many parents, the mom in this book faces challenges during her children’s toddler through elementary school years.

This playful approach keeps kids entertained when they’re bored and disruptive. It calms them when they’re upset and melting down. It stops them from whining and fussing.

“This is a fabulous book written by a fun mom who knows how to make parenting a game – and makes it easier for everyone! This book contains stories with examples of how to turn a tricky parenting situation from kids whining to engagement and excitement. I’m quickly noticing when I put on a huge smile and make a situation sound fun rather than tedious, my preschooler is much more receptive and we have fewer battles. Two thumbs up from us both!”
