There are several ways parents and teachers may interact with Dr. Kenney.
I. Read The Book ~ The Family Coach Method (St Lynn’s Press, 2009), is like sitting down with Dr. Lynne in your kitchen. Here’s what two moms have to say:
As a mother of 3, I’ve read many parenting books over the years. Lynne Kenney’s book stands out above the rest! I’ve been able to immediately apply her practical advice and am already seeing results with my children. The activities at the end of each chapter gave me an opportunity to practice the methods and engage my kids in the process. It’s so good you’ll be buying copies for your friends! LW
Dr. Kenney has written an excellent parenting book with practical and useful tips that are easy to implement right away. The book is packed with the whys and hows of raising thoughtful, responsible and conscientious children. The activities are fun for families and the parenting examples relate to real-life situations with easy-to-follow solutions. Dr. Kenney’s tone is very charming, witty and sincere, making the book a pleasure to read. I highly recommend this to book to parents of children 3-8. Even the most well-read of parents will find useful information and practical tips. MM
II. Order The Online MultiMedia Companion to The Family Coach Method ~ Dr. Kenney teaches The Family Coach Method and brain-based parenting strategies online through her multi-media class. 20 hours of editorial, audio, video and lessons to create your extraordinary life.
III. Invite Dr. Lynne to speak at your school. Engaging, funny and full of novel brain-based ways to teach your children new skills. Dr. Lynne has over 100 ways to use Time-In not Time-Out to raise competent happy kids.
IV. Learn about Dr. Lynne’s exciting new motor math program to enhance your child’s conceptual math development through play. In Dr. Lynne’s simple motor math program, Play Math, we teach meaningful math using soccer, kick and tennis balls, along with polyspots, marker board, markers, cards and base ten blocks to play math motorically. We say math, play math and build math so that the children begin to develop the ability to THINK mathematically. For children grades 2-5.
“When I met Dr. Lynne, I did not like math. Now I am learning multiplication and I love math!” AB
“Playing with the balls and blocks makes math fun, I had no ideas (sic) there was a math class that could be this fun.” GH
