Most parents would say that they love their children, passionately. They might also admit that at times they experience frustration, anger and even disappointment because of disobedience and a lack of cooperation from their children.

Parenting is (Not) Child’s Play deals with the ‘Special Play Time’ method, a revolutionary and proven tool that empowers both parents and children. During a 40-minute weekly play session, parents learn, not only clear and practical skills in setting boundaries, they also gain a deeper understanding of the emotions and worries of their children. They discover how to encourage positive behaviour, too and thus increase the self-esteem of their children.

Within a short time, parents notice positive changes in the home. While enjoying mutual fun and play, they regain their parental authority and notice an increase in the emotional and social abilities of their children.

Orit Josefi Wiseman is a non-directive play therapist with an M.A. from the University of York in the United Kingdom. She has a clinic in Israel and has rich and extensive experience with parents and children using this method. She has also established trainings for families and professionals in the field of education in order for them to improve their communication with and empower the psychological robustness of children.

During her work, Orit has met many parents who have learnt parental skills but could not implement them in real time. Her book is written for all those parents. Having a deep faith in the efficacy of the method, Orit wishes to share her knowledge and make it accessible to every household with children.

Orit Josefi Wiseman managed the European branch of an American Hi-Tech company in London until she decided to abandon this path and devote her life to the benefit of children and their healing. Orit completed her MA studies in Play therapy at the University of York, UK, over 20 years ago. Since then, she has gained vast international experience gleaned from her clinical work with emotional and behavioural difficulties of children.

Orit has also established training programmes for families to improve their communication and empower the mental robustness of children. She has created and conducted special projects with educational teams and social services care-workers in the UK, Turkey and Israel. In addition, Orit has lectured at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and in the School of Play Psycho-therapy in Tel Aviv.
