Developing a Parents' Activities Manual for Homemakers/Single Parents. Final Report.
This report describes a project that surveyed approximately 400 single parents about their needs as parents and developed a handbook of activities based on responses received from 100 of those survyed (a 25% return rate). The manual that was developed was designed for single parents to use with their children in their homes. Following a project report that includes the survey, the manual is presented. Designed for use by parents of children ages 3-8, the activities are specifically written to enhance the quality of interaction between parent and child. They are divided into 14 categories: following directions, nutrition, listening, talking, reading, taking turns, discipline, music, games, becoming independent, household chores, art, using television, and mathematics. Each activity is presented in this format: title, age level, purpose, materials, directions, and notes to the parent. The second section of the manual contains the activity game boards, cards, and sheets needed for some of the activities. Bibliographies of books for children and parents are appended. (YLB)
