Overview


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!

    This book came at the perfect time for me. Chris & I had alr

    This book came at the perfect time for me. Chris & I had already started talking about (and even acting on) some of the ideas in this book but it felt really good to read that Minimalist Parenting is something that works in real life for the long run. I also really like receiving the daily emails that are offered on the Minimalist Parenting website...small doses of good advice and tips/tricks to less stuff, stress, etc. 

    Highly recommend for anyone who is tired of the rat race and/or is trying to figure out the best environment for YOUR family. They are not judgmental and never say "you must..." anything (well, maybe once). It is a flexible approach to finding peace and harmony in your life.
