Item description for The Power of Parent-Child Play by Laurie W. Sargent...

Overview
It's no surprise that experts believe parent-child play is good for families. But do you ever feel too busy or tired to play? Do you ever feel guilty if a game of Candy Land is not your idea of a good time, or exasperation when personalities clash in the midst of family fun? In "The Power of Parent-Child Play," author Laurie Winslow Sargent tackles these issues with honesty, humor, and practical advice. Her "5-Minute-Fun" activities will help you connect with, teach, and nurture your children, and can help reduce the need to discipline while inspiring more joy-filled parenting. Sargent's unique perspective on play is influenced by her former work in psychiatric and developmental occupational therapy, her parenting magazine article research, and her experience raising three children. This book offers you: *Fresh insights on play barriers and benefits *Tips on how to squeeze meaningful bits of play into busy, stressful days *New understanding about developmental and temperamental differences *On-the-spot funny, insightful dialogues with kids *Tips on how to playfully nurture your child's independence and self-reliance *Ideas to help you adapt toys and games to make them more fun and educational, and suggestions for memory-making family outings PLUS *Over a hundred 5-Minute-Fun activities, dozens of thought-provoking questions for book groups and parent support groups, an index to activities, and direction to additional parenting resources: all to help you fit more fun into your family.

A Real Mom Shares Her Secrets  Jun 4, 2003
Where was this book when I had little ones? Mine are grown now, but I wish I'd thought of these practical, fun tips for play with my kids. I highly recommend this for every mom.
 
On overcoming play struggles and increasing family fun:  Apr 18, 2003
The Power of Parent-Child Play is the first book to directly acknowledge common struggles with parent-child play while offering readers humor, compassion, and practical strategies. The book combines storytelling with magazine-style tips and Five Minute Fun activities to help parents:

1) increase time and energy for play and decrease stress,
2) incorporate discipline more effectively with play,
3) increase motivation and spontaneity for play, and
4) increase joy and playfulness in the home.

Endorsements:

Says Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D., (Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse): "Laurie gives us what we need-a fresh plan for bonding and enhancing our relationship with our children through play." Sherwood Wirt (Editor Emeritus, Decision magazine and 28 book author) enjoys the "candid way she [Sargent] describes her own home, and her deep insight into the personalities of growing children."

Cynthia Tobias (The Way They Learn) appreciates the "practical, immediately usable strategies that any parent can understand.", and Dorothy Rich (MegaSkills , Forward by Barbara Bush) states, "In this book [Sargent] generously shares hundreds of excellent ideas that enable parents to enrich the lives and the achievement of their children."

This book touches moms and dads. Jeff Kemp, former NFL quarterback and director of Families Northwest, writes: "This book is like a toy chest, overflowing with great insights and plans for parent-child play . . . and ultimately, loving our kids."
