I currently have four products for care-givers and teachers of children. Two are e-books for people who care for young children. This includes parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents, child care workers, and baby sitters. The third product, PARENTING, is a paper-based game where the players role-play a day caring for a newborn. There two versions of PARENTING, one for small groups such as expecting parents and baby showers, and an expanded version of the role-playing game for classrooms and other large groups. The forth product is loosely based on escape rooms, is called Classroom Escape, Food labels, where small teams learn how to read and apply food labels.

3) PARENTING A NEWBORN for small groups lets players experience many of the situations that parents of a baby up to 6 months old face, from simple feeding and changing to medical situations and keeping their own sanity. For more information about PARENTING A NEWBORN, click here.
PARENTING A NEWBORN, INFANT, or TODDLER for large groups lets players experience the same situations as the small group version, but includes three age ranges and allows for the teacher or leader to modify the game to suit the needs of the class. It is intended for grades 7 – 12. The hardcopy version is still available, and a downloadable version should be finished soon.

4) Classroom Escape, Food Labels presents word and math problems related to the nutrition information on food labels and web sites, but with a twist. To engage your students, some of the problems have an additional riddle that must be solved to complete the exercise. For more information on Classroom Escape, click here.
