Review quote

"Using checklists and personal exercises, the book focuses on empowering parents to be creative under the premise that children will model their behavior on that of their parents. The reminders to look for joy and wonder may be revelatory for Cameron's readers and their kids." --Publishers Weekly "While Cameron's methods have plenty of applications for children, her experience lies in the effects of childhood on creativity, which applies to adults too. The book is as much about examining what sort of parent you are (and how creativity was - or wasn't - encouraged in your own childhood) as it is about providing ideas. I'm not sure this book is so much for parents as for anyone who has been a child." --Vic Groskop, The Guardian (UK) "Use this great guide to increase creativity for your children-and for you, too." --Kristen Kemp, "This book spoke to me as if its author was an old friend--one who saw me through obsessive, self-neglecting new parenthood, and now knows me as a more well-rounded person with happy children. And that distinction is just the point. As parents, we care for our children as best as we know how, but we must also take time (even tiny moments) to care for ourselves and nurture our own creative needs and desires. In doing so, we cultivate joy in our lives, which we can then share with--and model for--our children. The chapters are chock-full of practical advice, delightful activities, and playful exercises that get your and your child's creative juices flowing." --Redbook "In The Artist's Way for Parents, Cameron helps parents unleash their children's creativity and sense of wonder. he beauty of Cameron's advice is that she offers very specific, undaunting exercises for the, shall we say, less artistically inclined among us. There is definitely a spiritual bent to Cameron's work--readers of her memoirs know she is a Christian. But hers is a gentle, ecumenical approach, and she is never off-putt
