Grandparents will benefit, too Oct 8, 2006
After reading Weekend Parenting, I discovered the book isn't just for parents - it's a great resource for grandparents, too! The book could benefit anyone who spends time with children. The activities are fun, easy to do, and promotes that all important "quality time" many hope for but sometimes are unable to achieve without a little help. Well, the help is here and all you have to do is pick one of the 101 activities in the book to get you started. As a grandparent to an active toddler, I'm looking forward to trying all the activities. It sure beats propping them in front of the television!
Finally.... Oct 6, 2006
Finally, a book that offers frazzled but well-meaning parents some truly creative ideas on creating quality time with their youngesters. After all, you can only play "Go Fish" so many times without going over the edge. Cementing our relationships with our children while building fond memories and encouraging creativity is the way to go -- and this book will help you do just that.
This is the best book ever to help you find activities for your kids! Sep 21, 2006
I am always looking for more things to do with my son and this book has it all. Wonderful activities that also help mold your kids into the people you aspire them to be in the future. I couldn't ask for a better guide to assist me in finding the best for my child.
