Parenting is incredibly rewarding, but it’s also stressful. With ongoing power struggles and never-ending issues, it’s a lot of hard work.
That’s for sure!
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Wouldn’t you like to have more fun as a parent?
My mom and dad had a trick.
They embraced a “can do!” spirit, used their imagination, and created games to turn around frustrating moments.
It was like magic! Life became more enjoyable for both me and my parents.
I want to share this simple technique, so you too can have more fun being a parent.
Parenting—Let’s Make a Game of It is not your typical self-help book. The “how to” messages are told through quick to read, light-hearted stories to spark your playfulness, encourage out-of-the-box thinking, and stop the power struggles. Since parents are busy and don’t have much time, each story stands alone. You can read them sequentially or jump around and read them in any order
Like most parents, the mom in this book faces everyday challenges during her kids’ preschool through elementary school years.
- The kids are bored, not cooperating, and melting down.
- The mom’s annoyed, stressed, and overwhelmed.
But things change when she creates games to deal with these challenging situations.
Soon her kids willingly listen. Tension turns to quality time. And life becomes more playful.
“This book will help any family deal more effectively with their children. They will find it is not only useful but fun as well.”
— Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Jewish Soul
