I am so glad I read the book Not So Fast Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families by Ann Kroker. This is a timely book with a much needed message for our current society. I finished it over Thanksgiving, just haven't finished my review of it till now! From the publisher (David C Cook): We're raising our kids in a high-speed, high-pressured, 24/7 world. Pushing children to get ahead, we cram everything possible into our days to maximize their chance at success. We're overloaded, overextended, overcommitted, and over-caffeinated. And we're paying a price: Our relationships are anemic; our health, in jeopardy. Half-awake and half-hearted, we can't sustain this pace. But how can we possibly downshift without missing out? My thoughts: Ann Kroeker is right on, and I couldn't agree more with what she shared in this book. We all need to slow down. She shares her own experiences of life at a slower pace as well as the lives of other families who have made the choice to live at a slower pace. Our mentality has become such that we feel we have to constantly be connected, our kids have to be in every sport or activity possible, and we have to live with the newest gadgets, biggest houses, and fastest cars. What are all of the activities and fast-paced living really getting us though? This is a book that makes you stop and consider how you are spending your time and what values you are passing on to your children. I highly recommend you read this book.
