A Guide to Laughing More and Yelling Less
by Silvana Clark
Most of us have been told at one time or another that children are a gift from God. We all enjoy gifts, so why do we forget to enjoy our children? There’s more to raising kids than making sure they clean their room and eat a healthy diet!
But today’s busy families seem to race from one activity to the next with meals, homework, chores, and discipline somehow fitting between the cracks.
For families wanting to inject some fun back into their daily routines, Silvana Clark comes to the rescue. She can’t promise parents a good night’s sleep or extra hours in the day, but she can give them the tools they need to help foster a feeling of family fun and togetherness based on solid biblical teaching.Of course, there’s no guarantee that your children will be transformed into angels after a single game of UNO, but the odds are in your favor that discipline problems will diminish in direct proportion to the amount of time you and your kids spend doing things together.
Don’t feel overwhelmed, thinking that you need to develop a nightly comedy routine or wear a clown outfit to entertain your offspring—each chapter in Fun-Filled Parenting has a gradual, month-long approach to making positive changes in your home. Fun expert Silvana Clark shows you how to turn meals, devotions, homework time, chores, vacations and other obvious and not-so-obvious family times into moments of warmth, trust, creativity and, most of all, fun!
Parents will welcome Clark’s humorous stories of family life, as well as practical suggestions on discipline, bedtime, and homework. Fun-Filled Parenting takes the stress out of parenting by offering a myriad of ideas for spending time with children in a positive, fun way. This amazing book is for all parents who want to see their children develop into self-confident, positive adults with a strong sense of their spiritual roots. (189 pp.)
