Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Just when I thought the dinner time meals had been regulated to silly banter, in comes Mary DeMuth's new book 150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking. Already proving to be a valuable tool in connecting with my teens, I will definitely be recommending this book to the moms I invest in. Thanks again for delivering just what we need, Mary."
--Lynn Cowell, speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries and author of His Revolutionary Love; Jesus' Radical Pursuit of You

"Once again Mary DeMuth knows how to write a book that is as entertaining as it is helpful. Her newest book, 150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking, is just excellent! She divided the book up into 10 chapters that make these questions relevant to different topics - ones any child would want to answer. This book gave me insight, practical application and thoughtful ideas of how to interact with my children. I would recommend this book to every parent."
--Lane Jordan, LaneJordanMinistries.com

"Mary DeMuth carefully and cleverly shares, in a very quick read, why the dinner table invites intimate conversation and why conversational parents are parents whose children grow up trusting them and staying in communication. All you need to get a conversation going is something to talk about that matters, and there are 150 conversations here just waiting to happen."
--Susan Meissner, author, Lady in Waiting

"In today's hurried world, many of us have forgotten how important it is to connect with our children, especially at mealtime. Often we ask them how they are doing, only to receive one-word answers. As parents, we may become discouraged. Mary DeMuth provides 150 delightful, open-ended questions that help us connect with our children. These unique discussion starters will open the doors for fun and enlightening mealtime conversations. I heartily recommend that you keep a copy of this book near your dinner table!"
--Jody Capehart, author of The New Christian Charm Course, educator and school administrator

Mary DeMuth carefully and cleverly shares, in a very quick read, why the dinner table invites intimate conversation and why conversational parents are parents whose children grow up trusting them and staying in communication. She includes fascinating conversation-starters that go way beyond "So how was your day?" The 150 questions will allow kids and their parents to explore their aspirations, their fears, their philosophies on life - and believe it or not, even a five-year-old has a philosophy on life. All you need to get a conversation going at the table is to something to talk about that matters, and there are 150 conversations here just waiting to happen.
