As digital devices take over family life in subtle and seductive ways, what will happen to child development and family bonding when children spend more time with screens than they do at school or with their parents?
Life swirls at a hectic pace in most families today. That reality places a high premium on finding family time. Little Things Long Remembered: Making Your Children Feel Special Every Day, is updated for today's digitally driven and time-strapped families, offering hundreds of easy ways to create treasured childhood rituals that your children will look back on fondly.
Consider this book a personal think-tank for being a standout parent and a takeoff point that will spark ideas for cherished family time. When a parent sometimes feels out of touch with children, Little Things Long Remembered is the go-to resource chock-full of ways to bring families closer while making efficient use of everyone’s available but generally scarce time. It is possible to stay involved no matter how busy you are.
Childhood is an adventure, a journey to be joined by parents whenever possible. Small parcels of time well used assure stellar memories—and ultimately, memories and traditions are the backbone of family unity…and the glue that holds family together. In these short intervals you give a child a clear sense of security and attachment to you, to your family unit, and to your larger family.
The book hinges on 10 Cardinal Rules designed to help parents let go of work or social obligations and commit to spending time with their children. Rules include:
This book is a family guide for feeding children’s memory banks. Minimum effort—and sometimes no effort at all because some memories create themselves—brings maximum results in the memory department. Children will look back and say, “I had such a happy childhood.” And, parents will say, “I did my job well.”

Not only does Lauren do a fantastic job of organizing the tour and communicating with you at every step of the way, but I found the tour hosts that signed up for her tour to be of a higher caliber. The reviews that I got on this tour were thoughtful and well-written and I noticed an uptick in sales during this tour. I also appreciated the fact that many of her tour hosts that wrote reviews posted them on multiple sites, not just on their blog or Instagram account. This is invaluable to an author. I highly recommend Lauren and iReads Book Tours. - Allyson Rice, author of The Key to Circus-Mom Highway
Lauren Carr's iReads Book Tour is amazing! She gets real results. Not only did I get thousands of new eyes on my series, but I grew my following on all social media channels as well. Lauren has a dedicated group of reviewers and bloggers who are competent and reliable - no more wasted ARCs mailed out with no results.
