Publisher's Description

Parents spend a good chunk of time making sure their kids are okay--they're getting good grades, doing their chores, and doing just enough cleaning that their rooms won't be condemned if the Board of Health happens to drop by. 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids offers a straightforward, workable plan to create new avenues of connection between parents and their kids. This handy guide coaches moms and dads to do one simple thing each day for three weeks to connect with their kids.

Daily connection ideas include:

  • planning a family fun night
  • telling your child what you like about them
  • developing a character growth chart
  • writing a love note to your child
  • working together on a family project

Written in Kathi's warm and compassionate but thought-provoking tone, this book will motivate parents to incorporate great relationship habits into their daily lives and give them confidence that they can connect with their kids even in the midst of busy schedules.

    Just what I was looking for!

    In the beginning of the book you will find a personality test to find out your child's strongest personality, and throughout the book, as you read the 21 ways to connect, you will be given more direct ways to make these connections work specifically for each kid based on their "unique personality". This was a huge help for me! I made a note beside each answer that best fit each of my kids. I wrote a S. next to an answer for my daughter and an A. next to the answer that best fit my son. Tallied the letters for both kids and found out their personality's. I have a greater understanding of why both my kids do not like to be alone and have a tendency to talk...and talk...and talk some more. At the end of each chapter author Kathi Lipp also gives ideas for teens, step-kids, and single parents. She also has written a bonus section with 50 Ways to Connect with Girls and 50 Ways to Connect with Boys.

    Something I think is really great about her ideas is that they are all practical. Everyone can do them-the rich, the not so rich, the working parents, the stay at home parents, even the grandparents. Just to give you an example, we are giving the $15 Family Fun Night a go. I have assigned every other Saturday night as our $15 Family Fun Night. Each person gets a turn to plan what we will eat, where we will eat it, and what we will do while keeping to the $15 budget. A great learning experience for my kids all the way around.

    ***Thank you Harvest House Publishers for the free book in exchange for my honest review.***

    This is a very helpful book for anyone who has children or even grandchildren of all ages. The ideas are great and will be easy to work into your family's lifestyle.

    There are many helpful ideas on ways to make the connection with your kids more meaningful. The author writes so anyone can understand her ideas and implement them. The book is not very long and can easily be read in a short time.

    I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the author did a great job at getting her ideas across. She writes with a sense of humor and you will not feel judged! I think by reading this book you will actually feel like you are doing just as well as everyone else! Life is busy but this book will give you some simple ideas that are easy to take the time to do with your children. I say this is a must read book!

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    This book was not what I expected at all. I was expecting something more along the lines of 1) Talk to and with your kids, 2) Do stuff together, etc. You know, the usual stuff. But 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids is packed full with ideas of what to do with and for our children. It's not just "Talk to and with your kids"; it's how to talk to them, when, what to say, how to prepare yourself for it. This book is all about doing. The author draws from her personal experience, as well as the experiences and advise of others to make a great compilation of very good ideas of things to do to connect with our kids. It's a very practical book.

    Although there may be many books that fit this description, this one goes further. It is not only about the many things you can do with your children; Mrs. Lipp helps us to custom fit the ideas according to our children's personalities, their likes and dislikes. There is a personality quiz at the beginning of the book to more or less guide us to see which personality best describe our children, and it is a very handy tool for understanding our kids' different needs.

    I really liked how candidly and sincerely the author spoke about her own problems connecting with her children. Everyone can identify with her struggles, relate to her, sympathize and know that they are not alone. However, many of the ideas presented here, although very good, are pretty basic and common, so I sometimes felt like it was strange, for example, to receive advise on eating together with my children, since we do so everyday. But if you have a blended family, somewhat detached teenagers, are thinking of starting a family or if you are simply at a lost of what to do with your kids, here you will find good, fun ideas to enjoy each others' company. Yes, some are very basic but I still encourage you to read this book just to see how simple, basic ideas can be given a fun new twist.

    4 out of 5 stars.
