Another Resource for Families - 150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking - I'm Giving One Away!

I'm delighted for the opportunity to share another resource you could recommend to the parents in your church . . . and I will be giving one away!

150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking  
Author - Mary E. DeMuth
Publisher - Harvest House

Favorite Features -
  • book has 150 open-ended questions designed to prompt lively discussions for the entire family
  • intro does a great job of explaining "conversational parenting" and how it helps parents know their children's hearts and minds
  • book has ten chapters and each chapter has fifteen questions and each chapter begins with a few thoughts about the topic
  • some questions are silly, some are serious - all will make people think and generate conversations
  • book ends with ten ways to have your house be a home where your kids want to be!
Grab this book and sit down with your family - preferably at the family dinner table . . . and if you are not eating at least five meals a week as a family, change you schedule and do whatever it takes to have at least five meals a week as a family - pick a topic and question and let the conversation begin! Encourage parents in your ministry so they understand how essential it is for them to engage their children in conversation . . . and be sure you are doing this with your own family so you can set the example and share your own experiences!
