The world is changing faster than ever before. Parents and children are busier and technology has presented new challenges we must face. But with all the texting, emailing and posting, are children developing the social skills that will be required for life-long happiness, confidence and success?
The SMART Playbook was founded by a mom of three, with a possibly impossible mission: to offer families a simple and effective game plan to teach relevant life skills in a modern world. Written in a relatable style and chock full of games. The SMART Playbook will lead parents and their children in a collaborative effort to bring manners to a new generation. The child is the player, the parents are the coaches, the book is the guide. Life is the referee. Sneak Peek click here!
