I love the tips on simplifying although I do a lot of those things already. Very quick, easy reading with some new ideas, but mostly things that we as mothers have figured out on our own. It's worth picking up and reading. I did however like the original Simplify Your Life book the best.
This is a good book for systematically simplifying life with kids. It is straight-foward and easy to read. It has lots of good suggestions, some of which are obvious--like "buy fewer toys"--but it also provides ways to implement the suggestions--like "only allow new toys on birthdays or special holidays" or "for every new toy that comes into the house, one old toy must be donated/given away." Great step-by-step approach for people who feel overwhelmed by a too hectic life with kids.
From back of book:
Raising happy, healthy, well-adjusted children is one of our greatest challenges. Kids require incredible amounts of our love, understanding patience, praise, nurturance, guidance, respect, and thought. And these things all take time.
If you can simplify even one or two areas of your life, it will vastly improve the quality and increase the quantity of time you have to spend with your kids. And you family life will be much easier and a lot more fun. As it should be.
Really enjoyed reading through the ideas and tips. Most people will already know or be doing but there is enough to make it interesting and have some to implement.
Great book - key reminders - help with forming good parental habits
Love the realistic tips she gives.
100 pieces of advice, explained in about 2 pages each, you do the math, (well, there's 359 pages, I guess that's why I don't teach math). Anyway, pretty good practical advice, like "Learn to do one thing at a time".
