The family that laughs together …

If you are one of the many parents who are feeling a little ragged around the edges from so much time with your family …
I highly recommend checking out the offerings of Roberta Gold. She’s a Recreation Therapist and Certified Humor Professional based in California.
I met Roberta through a writers group and just fell in love with her and her work.
She has some cool, fun resources to help families use humor to handle what’s going on right now – see below.

The Family That Laughs Together … A Quick Guide to Sanity When You Feel Like Screaming – By Roberta Gold

Cover for The Family That Laughs TogetherThis is a perfect guide for families going a little crazy with so much forced togetherness in the spring/summer of 2020.

Roberta Gold’s smart suggestions about staying sane, looking on the bright side, and finding the humor in any situation will only become more valuable in the days ahead.

She writes with great love and wisdom about how to set an example for your children in terms of handling life’s ups and downs with grace, humor, and charm.

I especially loved her tip about how to defuse a temper tantrum – pure genius!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to bring more joy into their family’s home. You can pick up The Family That Laughs Together on Amazon here.
