The original/first edition of Little Things Long Remembered (Random House/Crown kept in print for almost 20 years) was a Literary Guild Book Club Selection; an AOL.com featured book; excerpts ran in Family Circle and Good Housekeeping and more; the Little Things… series sold over a 100,000 copies.
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.”
Praise for Little Things Long Remembered:
“Little Things... promises—and delivers—a treasure chest of ideas to build cherished memories and strong family connections. Keep this book close by.” — best-selling author Judy Blume
“Newman’s tips for making grand family memories are so easy to implement that every parent will want to grab a few to try right away.” —Susan K. Perry, PhD, author of Playing Smart and Kylie’s Heel
“... a goldmine of wise and easily accessible ways to create a close, connected childhood, full of rituals that shape enduring childhood memories...” —Catherine Steiner-Adair, EdD, author of The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age
