What parents are saying...

  • "I felt like I was failing as a mama. I knew I needed to find a way to be a better mommy to these two happy and healthy children we were blessed with. But I work full time and cook every dinner at home, plus I'm responsible for keeping this whole household running. These cards were just the answer I was looking for. I can pick a card in the morning, spend a few minutes connecting with my kids, and then get done what I need to get done, knowing that I showed my children I love them and I'm there for them. Then if I ever start to feel like I'm failing as a mama again? Easy! I just pick another card, spend a couple minutes doing it, and I'm back on track." – Janine

  • "I know the importance of spending quality time with your kids, but I could just never make it a habit. We tried one-on-one dates for a while, but then we petered out. I was worried this would be just 'one more thing' on my list when I'm already beyond overwhelmed, but the cards actually make it super easy to fit quality time into my day! I keep the cards on my kitchen counter in a recipe box, and it's just the reminder I need to take a few minutes here and there every day to be present with my kids. When I use a card or two every day, I notice a HUGE difference in my kids' behavior. We fight less, and THEY fight less as siblings, too." – Kaytee

  • "I had my second child not too long ago, and I was worried that my first child was feeling neglected. I wasn't sure what to do. But then I saw these connection cards, and the light bulb went off! Every time I lay my youngest down for a nap, I pick a card to do with my oldest son, and his face just lights up knowing that mommy is about to spend some time giving him the one-on-one attention he needs." – Carmen

  • "I don't get to see my granddaughter very often, so I got a set of these cards to keep at my house. Not just for when she visits, but for our weekly Facetime calls too! When we get on the call, I pick a card at random, and we do whatever it says...together. It's such a fun way to stay connected with her, and the best part is I get to forget about all my worries for a few minutes and just be a kid again myself." – Mary
Spending time with your child can be quick + fun with these Family Connection Cards

Connect with your child in 10 minutes and reap the benefits all day.

Keep the cards to yourself for your own personal inspiration – or share them with your whole family and encourage your child to pick a card when they want to connect with you.

Here are just a few specific situations where you can use these Family Connection Cards to connect with your kids:

  • Every morning after breakfast and before you need to focus on your to-do list—when you fill your child's connection "tank" first, they'll be more likely to cooperate and less likely to interrupt you
  • When you feel like your child is turning everything into a power struggle, no matter what you do—an increase in power struggles is often your child's way of communicating they need more connection
  • After your younger child goes down for a nap and you have a few quiet minutes with your older child
  • If you notice you or your child acting irritable or moody—a quick dose of meaningful connection can help chase away the bad mood
  • Before bedtime so that your child ends every night feeling confident in your love for them

About the Author

Hi, I'm Kelly. I'm the mom behind the web site Happy You, Happy Family and the author of a book for parents by the same name. As a busy mom to four kids, I'm always on the lookout for clever, proven ways to connect with my kids. I created these Family Connection Cards to give parents like you a quick + simple way to fit in quality time with your kids even when you're short on free time.

When I feel disconnected from my kids, notice more power struggles, or it seems like one of us is a bit moody, we pick out a Family Connection Card and in 10 minutes, we're back to feeling connected. After that, my kids feel secure in my love for them, they're more likely to cooperate when I ask for their help, and I feel confident that I've invested in our relationship for the long term.

  • Drop the cards in an empty bowl or recipe box, and place on your dining room table or kitchen counter. (Or if you want, you can hole-punch the corner of the cards and put them on a book ring.)

Frequently asked questions

Q: Is this a physical product that you will ship to my house?

This is a digital product only. After you order here, you'll get an email with a PDF file to download, which you can then print at home or print at a local office store that handles printing jobs. In other words, there is nothing to be shipped in the mail because you get immediate access to the Family Connection Cards PDF. Follow the instructions in the step-by-step guide above for how to print and get started using the cards right away.

Q: What ages are the cards appropriate for?

The cards feature a wide variety of quick connection activities for all ages from toddler to teen. Each card lists the age range of kids it tends to work best with.

Q: What if I pick a card that I can’t do in that moment?

If you can’t spare the time shown on that card, you can always pick another card that has a lower time commitment. A handful of the Family Connection Cards take just one minute, and more than 20 cards take just 5 minutes. (For reference, only 15 of the cards land in the 15- to 30-minute range!)

Q: I have more than one child. How do you spend individual time with each child?

I have four kids, so this is my reality! That’s why I designed the Family Connection Cards so that most of the cards work well with more than one child at a time. But if you prefer to connect one-on-one, you can set up one child with an independent activity while you connect with another child, then take turns.

Q: What if I try to connect with my child, but they don’t seem to enjoy what we’re doing?

Every child is different, and some kids will enjoy certain Family Connection Cards more than others. If you discover your child doesn’t enjoy one of the activities, just take that card out of the pack and set it aside.

With that said, if you pick a card and it doesn’t feel like the best fit for you, try it once with an open mind. You might be surprised! If it turns out that card still isn’t a good fit for you and your child, take that card out of the pack.

Q: Do you offer any sort of guarantee?

I stand behind these Family Connection Cards 100 percent. If you aren't completely satisfied within the first 30 days of purchasing, send me an email to let me know why it wasn't a good fit or you. I'll refund your purchase, no questions asked.
