Want Athletic Kid? Buy this Book
I wanted my kids to be more athletic so I bought this book. It is an amazing resource with a wealth of games and activities. I never knew what it took to be coordinated and now I understand. Karen Ronney's games are easy, creative and fun. I have a blast playing them with my three kids. After 2 weeks, I've noticed a huge improvement in their speed, jumping ability and simple ball catching skills. This is a great book!!!

A Huge Hit With A Special Needs Child
I have two children and one has special needs. This book was perfect for playing games with both kids---at the same time. I love how Karen Ronney has adapted each activity for all kinds of kids and their levels. This book totally works for us. After about one week, I saw a huge improvement in both of my children. The could kick balls with more consistency and control. Also, my special needs boy learned how to throw a ball correctly!!! I am so exited about this book. Proud Parents' Guide is a GEM!!! I am not athletic so if it worked for me, it could work for anyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Mom of active boys loves this
I'm a busy mom of three active boys and I have little time to go to the park every day. A parent from my preschool recommended this book and it was like a miracle. I work full time but I also want to play sports type of games with my boys. Karen Ronney's book was the perfect answer. Now we all play together in our backyard for about 10 to 15 minutes. It is fabulous fun and I know my boys are getting very specific coordination skills as they are outlined in the book. If you are a parent with very little time like me, then this is the PERFECT book for you. I have also bought several copies for my friends!!1 It is that good. Want to have fun with your kids---help them get some energy out---and develop their athletic abilities? Proud Parents' Guide to Raising Athletic, Balanced and Coordinated Kids is the answer!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
