Last year at Relevant '10 I met Karis and Stephanie with Family Matters, a parenting and marriage organization founded by Dr. Tim Kimmel . They were such sweet ladies, and not just because they offered each blogger a Kids Flag Page! Yes, each one of us who wanted a copy could take one with the promise of a review.
I'm so very thankful for this game! Kiddo and I did it together a few months ago and I've been reading the book that comes in the game to better understand his personality. It has helped both me and my husband be more patient with Kiddo, as well as helped us know how to encourage him.
Each Kids Flag Page comes with enough pieces for four kids, which I thought was a great idea, because who has just one kid these days? Oh, yeah. Us! :)
The basic premise of the game is to help your child find their home country and their adopted country, or their main personality type and their secondary one. It's the best way I've EVER heard of to do this...the other ones I've seen are for adults. I could explain how to play, but I think the expert does it so much better, so I'll let him do it.
Kiddo had fun discovering his countries, and I really shouldn't have been surprised by the results...his home country is Perfect and his adopted country is Fun. His favorite sticker was Music. Shocker, I'm telling you. NOT.
According to the Kids Flag Page, this means he is one of the world's entertainers...um...yeah. This would explain why he sings ALL THE TIME and why he tries to make us laugh ALL THE TIME, and also why he gets so down on himself if he doesn't do something perfect the first time he tries. I'm telling you, this was so eye opening for me!
Reading the enclosed Kids Flag Page book helped me that much more. I was able to really delve into each country, as well as his unique combination.
Even though I was compensated for this review with a free game, if I had known how much this would help me learn how to better understand my child, I would have gladly paid for it. I highly recommend it to families with any number of children whose ages are 3-12. If you have more than four children, you can purchase refills!
