<b>Take advantage of the smartphone to strengthen your relationship with your child.</b><p>Slightly over a decade has elapsed since Steve Jobs unveiled a new, exciting, and intriguing product, developed by Apple—the first smartphone. We have since been living through a social revolution that has changed the way we communicate with one another, including within our own families.</p><p>During working hours, parents and children talk mostly about routine matters like the day’s events or whether they have done their homework, but the emotional component, so critical to a family, is missing.</p><p>Today, creating that emotional connection is one of the most important challenges parents face with.</p><p>After years of treating children and offering parenting advice, Liat Zelzer is convinced that children will respond happily to emotional communication conveyed by technological means. If done properly, this can go beyond the technical issues of the day and transmit feelings of warmth between family members when they are not in the same physical space.</p><p>In her book, Liat presents common situations in family life where parents are at work and wish to provide their children with support, help, or be part of their experiences, while also ensuring their wellbeing remotely. Through real-life examples from parents, Liat shows useful solutions through the use of a smartphone. This book suggests a broad range of ways of creating communication that bring families closer by showing the true potential rather than the downside usually attributed to this technology, in order to promote and aid our family goals.</p>

Planning on staying in for the night? Need some fun games and challenges for a fun night in? We put together this activity book with that scenario in mind and I hope you enjoy the trivia and other activities I have in here. They are intended to be fun and help you learn a little more about each other and grow closer. Also, it involves a way to drink, eat, and have a bit of adult fun together! <br /><br />Grab a bottle (or two) of wine, make a container of your favorite shots, throw together a snack tray, let the kids rent a movie or Redbox them or whatever it takes to get them out of your hair and head for your bedroom or send them all to theirs. Lock the door, pull down the shades and get ready for fun!<br /><br />First things first, make sure you each have a pen and some paper. Notebook preferred but whatever!<br /><br />This game is for fun! Before you turn the page it’s time for a social sip of your drink and a passionate kiss!<br /><br />Best played on a larger Kindle Reading Device. Enjoy all the books in the series!<br /><br />Getting dressed up and going out is fun. Couples should get out of the house together. However, you can’t necessarily always go out every weekend. Life gets in the way sometimes, but there’s no reason you can’t still have fun date night at home! That’s where the idea for these books comes from. Something fun to do that is different and gets you talking and engaged while still being romantic and fun. It’s our “date night downstairs.”<br /><br />Everything you should need is written up in the following pages. All you have to do is read each page and do the activities listed on them. You’ll need paper and pencils. You should also have your smart-phone available. Doing this should provide for some solid laughs and some interesting conversations and if it leads to more just remember kids are expensive! <br />

This book commemorates my daughter's 25 year journey as a ballet dancer and shares her experiences in local dance schools, summer workshops, auditions, performances, and professional ballet companies. Ballet is an art form that requires strength, flexibility, intelligence, beauty, grace, and determination. Ballet dancers need family support and encouragement to thrive and grow their talent. If there is a budding ballet dancer in your family, you will benefit by reading this book as it will prepare you for what may lie ahead. I followed my daughter through 15 of these United States and helped her relocate several times. It wasn't always easy, but when the curtain went up, it always felt like it was worth it.
