The Radical Family Workbook and Activity Journal is for Parents, Kids and Teens

Vanessa Van Petten and 20 of her teen interns wrote this family workbook to give parents real advice and bonding activities that will actually work! In this series, we put together 30 sessions worth of challenges and activities to help your family re-start, re-energize and re-connect.

In each session, families will get a set of challenges, materials and action steps to do for about 30 minutes. Families can work through the Radical Family Workbook at their own pace! You could do a session every day or one every three months! This is for families with children of all ages. Younger children can even participate in many of the activities and family bonding times.

    Thanks for this extensive list. It’s nice to see so many dads taking an active role in parenting. The “parenting magazines’ wouldn’t believe it. I’d like to give a shout out to two other awesome blogs:


    It’s a really fun, well-written blog. And, of course, my own:


    It’s fun, obscure at times, but filled with good intention
