Product Review: Wisetalk for Families
After my blog a few weeks ago on kids and secrets, Jennifer, the editor of Australian Family Magazine pointed to a product that can help families get better connected.
It’s called Wisetalk for Families and it is a tool for parents and a simple game for kids. Each box contains 26 doubled-sided alphabet tokens and a book of topics that relate to each token.
It only takes a few minutes to ‘play’ and helps to discuss some important issues with your child. It covers a wide variety of subjects from anger through to respect, pain and lying and much more. . .
So I tried it with my five year old. He selected an alphabet token and using the book as a reference, I spoke with him about my experiences with that particular topic and he told me his. He didn’t mind it at all – even though he realised pretty quickly there was no winner or loser with this game.
