We wanted to share an interesting article about the benefits of playing board games with your teens. Psychotherapist Ugo Uch, posted on Psychology Today.com an article describing the difficulties parents can have teaching their teens on the Autism Spectrum how to develop emotional resiliency. One of his teaching strategies in helping his clients is play therapy. He discovered our board game, Tsuro, and quickly discovered what a great tool it was to teach teens about cause and effect without having to lecture them. Ugo states, “The Tsuro board game has now become my personal favorite and I strongly recommend this game for parents who have received far too many complaints from their teens about being lectured.”
