In February’s free e-book for members only: Teaching Your Kids to Think and Solve Problems, veteran author and educator Harry T. Roman offers parents a practical approach to creative thinking, learning and problem solving for their kids. Using examples of typical activities around the house, Roman shows parents how they can encourage their children to think creatively, learn and solve problems.  In concise, but information-packed chapters, the author describes how youngsters can help with such family-centered activities as home improvement projects, backyard improvements, kitchen skills and family vacations.
