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.
