Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Timothy Smith challenges life??'s frantic pace and offers helpful solutions to developing the perfect pulse for individual families. As families become increasingly busier, the stress puts a strain on relationships. But some active families have discovered a rhythmic pace, a heartbeat that works for them. Connecting With Your Kids is a stethoscope to listen to each individual??'s pulse and develop a cadence as a family that benefits everyone.

Review:

"Smith, a family coach and conference speaker, diagnoses hurry and stress as the two greatest problems facing the contemporary American family. 'A generation ago the latchkey kid was the poster child of neglect,' he writes. 'Now it might be the overscheduled child, who never rests, but is shuttled from activity to activity.' After laying out reasons why we rush through life, he prescribes some solutions that are solid, if not earth-shattering. Revive the family dinner. Encourage free, unstructured play. Take time daily to focus on each child one-to-one. Keep the Sabbath. Other suggestions are more unusual and fresh, such as giving each child a 'biblical blessing' like Jewish fathers give their children. The book's second half is unfocused, as Smith abandons the basic theme of busyness to offer general skills on relating to the various personality types within a family. He also employs a gimmicky division of these personality types into groups like 'Clydesdales,' 'otters,' 'lions' and 'beavers.'" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

This guilt-free solution for "fast families" that helps them cut through the chaos and grow closer together is written by a family coach who has worked with families for 30 years.
