Item description for Family Writes: Parenting With Pens, Pencils And Pc's (Capital Ideas) by Peggy Epstein Joel Epstein...

Clinical psychologist Joel Epstein teams up with his mother, long-time educator Peggy Epstein, to offer parents an idea-filled handbook of entertaining writing activities for improving family communications at all levels. Each of the 77 writing projects is designed to help families communicate in a fun and playful manner, while at the same time learning to listen to each other's thoughts and respect each other's ideas. The emphasis is not on spelling, grammar, and handwriting (though this becomes part of the fun), but on reinforcing kids' ideas and how to communicate them effectively. Through writing, everyone in the family learns how to express their feelings to one another, resolve conflicts more easily, grow closer as a family, and get to know each other better. Better yet, families share time together and create lasting memories. Parents who regularly seek out books on how to deal with their children, parents who are looking for better family communication, and even parents who are simply looking for good ideas for spending the proverbial "quality time" with their kids will love "Family Writes." The book is appropriate for families of any size who have children in grade school or middle school. Because children of these ages are learning vital skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives, this book provides an excellent way for parents to model patterns of healthy communication.

Reviews - What do customers think about Family Writes: Parenting With Pens, Pencils And Pc's (Capital Ideas)?

Simple, fun ways to inspire writing at home!  Jun 4, 2007
Practical, easy ideas for families with children of all ages. We are using a writing journal for the summer and we will use another one for our family vacation. Our children thing it's great to leave messages and they don't realize how much writing practice they are getting!!!! More teachers should put down their great ideas in easy to use books.
An informative guide for parents on how to effectively and actively make a difference in their children's education  Apr 4, 2006
Family Writes: Parenting With Pens, Pencils, And PCs by Joel Epstein (Professor at the Missouri Institute of Mental Health, a division of the University of Missouri's School of Medicine) and Peggy Epstein (English schoolteacher and freelance writer) is an informed and informative guide for parents on how to effectively and actively make a difference in their children's education. As mother and son present the ideals of a child's general education, as well as the interests of a child, they also educate the reader on how to create a constructive and intimate bond between child and self. Family Writes is very highly recommended to all parents and mentor figures building an understanding of their role in the child's life, and how to be a positive influence for the child.
Easy and "Real" Writing Activities  Jan 11, 2006
What a terrific book! An amazing variety of activities with different approaches suggested for various ages and interests. But what impresses me the most is the "real-ness" of the activities: they ARE made up, but they ARE NOT contrived or trivial -- they are both worthy and worthwhile. What a treat! Can't wait to try them out!
It's on my top ten list!  Jan 10, 2006
"Family Writes" by Joel & Peggy Epstein is an invaluable teaching tool, not just for the family, but in the classroom for kids of all ages. My middle school drama students could definitely relate to the chapter entitled "It's All About Me!"
A Must Have!  Jan 5, 2006
This book has an incredibly wide-range of activities which makes it so easy to find things even the choosiest child will like. Two of the most significant things for young children are spending time with their family and being shown the value of writing. This book combines both of those things with enjoyable and creative projects children and parents can do together. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun way to spend time with their children while developing their creative and writing skills.
