We’ve all been there.
Your kids are fussing, misbehaving, and not listening—even melting down.
You’re frustrated, overwhelmed, and ready to scream.
If only there was a magical way to stop struggling with your kids.
Good news… there is!
The Secret: Turn Parenting Challenges Into a Game
Create games to deal with everyday parenting challenges.
You’ll avoid confrontations, end arguments, encourage cooperation, and even get kids to help around the house.
It really works.
My parents used this trick with me, and it’s how I raised my two kids.
If it helped me as a stressed-out single parent, it can help you.
Introducing: Parenting—Let’s Make a Game of It
I know, parents are super busy and most don’t have time to read.
That’s why I wrote an easy-to-read book with a snarky, “let’s-be-real” tone of light-hearted stories that entertain as well as inspire playful parenting.
The chapters are short and stand-alone, so you can read whenever you’re waiting or have a spare moment.
In only 5-10 minutes, you’ll learn clever ways to get toddlers, school-age children, and even headstrong kids to cooperate—willingly!

Hi, I’m Karen! I’m a mom with two grown kids, and I’ve spent my life immersed in this playful approach.
I wrote Parenting—Let’s Make a Game of It to help other families cope with everyday parenting challenges.
