Pros: lighthearted approach to the serious matter of raising children
Cons: fear I am too uptight to be goofing around
Please note Larry Cohen and I will be doing a Playful Parenting teleseminar together starting June 8th 2011 so of course this review is biased.
However read on to see why I so want to work with Larry. He is a play therapist and so has a lot of information as to why and how children play (facinating reading in itself).
The anecdotes of adventures that he gets into with children brings tears to my eyes, you can feel the palpable connections and trust that develops between him and the kids . It's a very honest approach to realise yes, I really don't like playing with my kids sometimes, I'm bored when they say "again, again, " and yet they want me to...so what can I do to get onto their level and muck about in a way that I actually have fun too...
