When was the last time ...
If it's been a while, then this book is for you.
Don't worry, it won't be about doing more. It will probably be about doing less.
Connecting With Your Kids is about discovering the right pace for your family. It's likely to mean slowing the pace, catching your breath, and listening to the rhythm of your pulse.
Can you hear it?
Or are you running so fast--and is the background noise so loud--that you can't hear your heartbeat?
You are not alone.
Families are becoming increasingly busier. In most cases, this adds stress and puts strain on relationships. However, some active families have discovered a rhythmic pace--a heartbeat that works for them.
Connecting With Your Kids is more than a warning to slow down. It's a stethoscope to listen to each family member's pulse and develop a collective cadence that benefits every family member.
A few promises as we go:
Connecting With Your Kids is divided into four parts:
Part One deals with Breathless Pounding--a look at restless families and why most of us seem to be on the run.
Part Two, Check Your Pulse, helps us take a look at the heart of the matter--how to connect with your child, heart to heart.
Part Three will help you Discover Your Heartprint--your unique pace as well as your child's. We'll define and examine four different heartprints.
Part Four brings it all together with Making Your Heartprint Work for Your Family, presenting tips and recommendations for connecting with the various heartprints.
Are you ready? Pour yourself another glass of iced tea, and then let's discover why so many families are hurried and what we can do about it.
