Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Parents love the sound of kids giggling, beam with pride as they hit milestones, and cherish movie nights snuggling on the couch. Unfortunately, these moments are few and far between for most families. The reality is crazed mornings hustling kids, stressed afternoons struggling to get work done and rushed evenings throwing dinner together. glamaLIFE says “Enough is enough.” and launches “How to Parent with Play” guide.
This Independence Day, glamaLIFE is challenging parents to declare independence from boredom. Their mission is to end monotonous routines, endless checklists and encourage living in the moment. Heather Schuck, glamaLIFE CEO and author, explains, We tell ourselves -and them- that we would do ANYTHING for them. And we mean that? However, the reality is they dont necessarily need us to do anything for them- they need us to engage with them.
The How to Parent with Play guide provides actionable strategies for engaging and being more playful with children. Whether it’s games to play while waiting in the bank line, craft activities for lazy Sundays, or how to start a meaningful conversation over dinner, Heather offers real life strategies that brings families closer together.
As a mother of three, she has plenty of experience to draw from. Heather Schuck is a passionate life balance advocate who feels the need for families to reconnect is urgent. She argues, While technology has made us more connected with the outside world, it has also made us less connected with our world at home. Technology and social media have become a blessing and a curse.
Recent research seems to justify Heather’s efforts to get parents offline and engaged with their children. Startling facts include children average 6 hours a day watching TV, “emotional affairs” via social media have become common place in divorce petitions and psychiatric diagnoses such as nomophobia (fear of losing your cell phone) are the new illnesses of our time. Despite the sobering realities, Heather is optimistic and takes a simple approach to inspiring fellow parents. Her heartfelt advice to, “Give kids open arms and soft eyes, listen not with your ears but with your heart and mind. Instead of telling them you love them -show it with your sincere and devoted attention.” hits home for many time-strapped moms and dads.
