What others are saying:
When I found out that Chelsea had created an e-book on character building through play, I knew I needed to purchase it. Her advice for parents is insightful, invaluable, but most importantly, do-able! My son needs practice with respectful and considerate behavior, and this is a wonderful guide for me to help him.

I’m looking forward to using Playing with Purpose with my three kids. The printable format with room for notes makes it easy to add my ideas. We have it in a 3-ring binder and will be using it in our morning homeschool routine.

Playing with Purpose is user-friendly, unique and valuable. My favourite thing about the book is that it makes you think about these qualities – which the average mama doesn’t consciously do. Every mama should know these clever ways to help their children build character.

As a parent of two young boys, I need all the ideas I can to keep teaching them and providing positive experiences for them as they become men. These ideas are kid and parent appropriate… no rarely used items to purchase or materials that will get wasted. We will be using Playing with Purpose for great ideas to use for our weekly Family Night.
