Yes! You can help get Family Fun Game card decks to families in need.

So many people have asked how they can contribute to the card decks that will be given to preschools and community organizations who serve parents facing additional challenges like poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, drug addiction, domestic violence, or other stressors that make children vulnerable. If you would like to be part of this effort, please make a contribution that ends in 1, such as $31, or $101. We will add your gift to the others being used to fund card decks that will be given to families who might need a little help to get them playing but will no doubt appreciate a game to bring them closer. Thank you for asking!

Why do these Hand in Hand games work? The secret is Special Time.

When children feel connected to their parents, they can be their naturally good selves, happy, relaxed, and eager to co-operate with us. However, their sense of connection is fragile, and is easily broken by something as simple as a parent giving attention to another sibling or getting distracted by a phone call. When children behave in “off track” ways, it’s a signal to us that they need some connection.

But giving children constant attention is impossible. That's what Special Time is for!

For more on this tool to help your child feel close, safe, and connected, download the Special Time chapter from our book "Listen: Five Simple Tools for Your Everyday Parenting Challenges" right here: https://www.handinhandparenting.org/special-time-chapter-download/

And please feel free to share the link!
