The book by Kathi Lipp focuses on real solutions that can be used to connect more with your kids. The author uses a blend of her spiritual beliefs and practical approaches to create real family time together.
She begins with some background information and a chance to discover what real personality type your children are so you can adjust your activities to work best with each personality type. It then moves on to chapters broken up to focus on different activities your family can participate in. She has added extra tips in each section to adjust the ideas to work with teens, step children and for single parents.
For her first connection idea, she has titled it “$15 Family Fun Night.” The idea: One person in the family is chosen to be in charge of planning a fun night that only costs $15. The author gives suggestions of things to do and structure for how to connect with your kids. She then follows up with the teens section, step child section, single parents suggestion and ends up with how to connect with each personality before moving to the next idea.
For 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids, Kathi has put together lots of terrific ideas in an easy-to-read format. Each of those activities are filled with multiple ways to change them up, making hundreds of ways you can spin the ideas so they can be reused over and over again.
