52 Essential Conversations

Ages: 5 and upManufacturer: Mind Brain Parenting

This deck of 52 cards is far more than a numbers game. From Go Fish to 5 Card Draw, each card prompts a thought and/or poses questions about Social-Emotional Learning in six areas: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, Responsible Decision Making and Diversity/Inclusion —topics that are relevant in today’s playrooms and conference rooms.

Our family testers reported pleasant surprises. Although at first the children were hesitant in voicing their opinions, once they became more comfortable, they couldn’t wait to be heard. Parents were delighted to learn what their children thought made a good leader, a kind person, and what new responsibility they felt ready to tackle.

The instruction sheet suggests three levels of play, and where to play; the website offers much more.
