ABCs for Rediscovering Family Connections is a down to earth parenting book. It provides parenting advise in the form of questions, statements and actions to guide caregivers to reflect more indepthly about the quality of their parenting. So many times, we adults get so wrapped up in the busyness of life and what needs to be done that we lose touch with the important people in our lives. Children's well-being benefits from having adults who are willing to slow down and ponder what they are doing or not doing to promote the development of their children. The book includes hands on activities to use in daily life and coloring pages to personalize the book experience.  We sometimes need gentle reminders to be present in the moment. The accumulation of these memories are what create our personal and family legacies.
