Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less

By Christine Koh, Asha Dornfest
We're in the midst of a parenting climate that feeds on more: more expert advice, more gear, more fear about competition and safety, and more choices to make about education, nutrition, even entertainment. The result? Overwhelmed, confused parents and overscheduled, over-parented kids. In Minimalist Parenting, Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest offer a fresh approach to navigating all of this conflicting background noise. They show how to tune into your family's unique values and priorities and confidently identify the activities, stuff, information, and people that truly merit space in your life. The book begins by showing the value of a minimalist approach, backed by the authors' personal experience practicing it. It then leads parents through practical strategies for managing time, de-cluttering the home space, simplifying mealtimes, and streamlining recreation. Filled with parents' personal stories, readers will come away with a unique plan for a simpler life!

"Covering everything from clutter to playtime to meals, Koh and Dornfest help readers recognize exactly where their time goes. For parents who feel the pressure to partake of every activity and perform to perfection, there are solid ideas here for chilling out." - "Library Journal, " August 2013
