Description de l'ouvrage

17 mai 2011
Everywhere you look, physical play—what some might call “roughhousing”—is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are being eliminated. Some new schools don’t even have playgrounds. Is it any wonder children retreat to “virtual horseplay” via video games?

But Drs. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence J. Cohen are here to shake things up—literally! With The Art of Roughhousing, they show how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing inspiration from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behavior, the authors present dozens of illustrated activities for children and parents to enjoy together—everything from the “Sumo Dead Lift” to the “Rogue Dumbo.” These delightful games are fun, free, and contain many surprising health benefits for parents. So put down those electronic games and get ready to rumble!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Gift for Dads Who Might Not Have Grown Up Roughhousing 7 juillet 2011
Par Mayflower Girl - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
My Dad, even though he is close to 80, is a natural born roughhouser. Although he's never heard of Larry Cohen, he would agree with everything he said in "Playful Parenting" as well as his and Anthony DeBenedet's new book "The Art of Roughhousing." At 79, he's down on the floor wrestling, tickling, and playing with my kids for hours.

My husband grew up in a very different environment--one where physical play just did not happen. I always sensed a bit of wistfulness on his part when he would watch my kids and their grandpa play--especially as everybody is having such a good time. Now, with "The Art of Roughhousing", their own Dad has some great new tricks and ideas to try. Dad is now cool--because not even Grandpa thought about riding a mattress down the stairs!

Love this book. Buy it (and some ice packs) and go to town. And I have to say, it's not just fun for the kids--it's fun for the parents as well. We've decided to use it as part of our weekly family time. We're going through the book and writing down the activities that are age appropriate. Then during our family meeting, one of the kids gets to pick our roughhousing activity of the week.

The first part talks about why roughhousing is good for you.

The second bit is like a little manual of different activities to try... some I'd never have thought of.

There's an intro section with things like Airplane, Alcatraz (you're prisoner in a pile of pillows...escape...and then your kids capture you (or vice versa)), Almost Gotcha (run after your kids and almost catch them..), etc.

A section called flight...with different activities with your kids in the air.

A section called games...including pillow fights, ejection seat (bouncing on the bed until "shot"..and then you jump off the bed), jousting, etc.

A section called contact...wrestling, steamroller (you're rolling on the floor with your kids in your arms), etc.

A section called imagination....big bad monster (you're a monster in the hallway..and every time your kids run past, you trip them up in a playful way), magic carpet ride (carrying a child on a towel held by two adults), etc.

And a final section called extreme roughhousing.

Probably at least 100 or more ideas--all that look great. Some are for younger kids 3 and up, while others are aimed at older kids (10-12+). Most will work for all kids--so get ready to enjoy

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Book About Importance of Play 19 mai 2011
Par Sandie - Publié sur
As the mother of three sons, I am always looking for engaging ways to interact with my boys. Not only does this book offer fabulous ideas, but it has easy to follow instructions for new roughhousing moves. It wasn't just me who loved the book, either! My boys loved looking through the pictures and begged me to try all the fun! (Their favorite is the mattress rafting, of course!). I have a friend who is due with her third child any day. Instead of getting her yet another baby blanket, I'm going to give her this book. Highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Big impact for such a small book 4 mars 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I ordered this book partly because I had read Playful Parenting by Lawrence Cohen (one of the co-authors of this book). When I received the book, I was a little disappointed. It's a fairly small book, and as I thumbed through I saw a lot of cartoon pictures illustrating different moves you can do with your child. But I thought I'd sit down and read it to see if there was anything useful. Once I got into the reading, I found some really incredible information!

Did you know that roughhousing helps build child/parent relationships, helps them emotionally, intellectually, ethically, etc? It's beneficial for a child's body & brain, and can help them learn how to stand up to bullies, how to interact with others, it stimulates neural pathways in the brain, makes them more creative, etc.

From this book I learned to bring more roughhousing into our play with our children. My husband would often roughhouse with our son (age 4 1/2), but neither of us did a lot with our daughter (age 22 months). She's young, petite, and seemed too small for roughhousing. I found out that she absolutely LOVES to do several of the things I've tried from this book, and is quite the active little girl! When either of our kids get grouchy or upset, roughhousing play can often bring them back to giggles.

The thing I really like about this book is that it gives the science behind why roughhousing is so important (critical one might say), and also gives specific examples and moves you can do. Each move has a cartoon illustration, a description, an age range, difficulty rating, and essential skill. I've tried several of these...some favorites include: Lumpy Couch, Airplane (which we call Flying Baby), Bodylock (an extreme favorite for both my children, and one I had started doing after reading Playful Parenting), Wheelbarrow, Rogue Dumbo, Sleeping Bat, and Steamroller. Many of these are things I never would have thought to try, especially with a toddler like my daughter.

This book is divided up into sections, with an intro as to why that type of roughhousing is important followed by the specific moves. The sections are:

Get Started with Instant Roughhousing
Extreme Roughhousing

I would absolutely recommend this gem to any parent of children ranging from 6 months up to 16 years of age!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic approach and ideas to put it into practice 20 mai 2011
Par Sanjoy Mahajan - Publié sur
This book is fantastic. The message is serious and important, while the tone is light and playful: an engrossing combination. I was reading the book on the Boston subway and almost missed my stop. Once home, I promised our almost-4-year-old that we'd try a new "wrestling" game that I had just learnt (we started about a year ago after reading Larry Cohen's earlier book _Playful Parenting_). She smiled as I described the game and how we can try it with her and with our 1-year-old.

The book's structure makes for an effective learning instrument, alternating sections of discussion and explanation with sections of roughhousing game descriptions. Each game is described in one page and gives the age range and difficulty, so I flipped through looking for age-appropriate games that would not be too difficult (for me!). As a bonus, the paper is stiffer than normal paperback paper (which too often resembles toilet paper in its cheapness), and that extra springiness and durability enables easy flipping.

May the book become a bestseller. We and our children would be happier and more confident.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Every husband should ask his wife to read this. 30 décembre 2013
Par de Gregory - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book would be good for mom and dad to read together. I was already a believer in roughhousing, and my wife had no problem with it. But sometimes I've seen that worried look on the faces of friends when I would throw our kids, and now our grandkids, into the air. Worse yet is that look that some wives give the husband when he does it with their kids. Look up helicopter parenting - it's not a good thing.

So as a believer in roughhousing I bought this for one of those couples, because I knew the dad would need all the help he could get convincing the mom that playing rough with the kids was okay. After reading it I believe every parent should read it. The whole philosophy of roughhousing presented in this book shows it's not just fun, but actually good for the emotional, physical, and spiritual health of the kids. In other words, roughhouse with your kids and watch them grow up well adjusted.

Tons of roughhouse stunts included and explained, with warnings for different age levels and such.

I'm not a fan of them but this is by far the best parenting book I've ever read. I've already given away two and will always have this one on the shelf. The book is also very sturdy.
