"To talk to a child....

to fascinate him, is much more difficult than to win an electoral victory. But it is more rewarding."
--Colette (1873-1954) French writer

In our fast-paced world, we often neglect to take time to "smell the roses." We're so occupied with our careers and our computers, that we sometimes overlook the all important face-to-face communication with our kids. Did you know that the children whose families have dinner together (and talk over dinner), have higher SAT scores? Playing word games like ABSeas, Pick Up Words, Zingo, or Brain Game, or reading books like Puzzle Island, gives you an opportunity to communicate with your child and engage her. Playing with construction toys, like Marbleworks, gives you an opportunity to converse, too. Try it and experience the results!
