Publisher's Summary

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. This audiobook 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!

An enhanced eBook version with video and audio, optimized for color tablets, is also available.

    Story
    "Not exactly as minimalist as I expected it to be"
    Would you try another book from Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest and/or Karen Saltus?

    If it was more on minimalist living, sure. This was more about frugality in my opinion. I think there was more about how to raise your kids in general and "oh yeah, this person on this forum stated this" throughout the book instead.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The book was boring, friends. I'm sorry. I am a minimalist parent and don't believe this is one I'd recommend to others.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen Saltus?

    No idea. I don't know much about narrators. She did okay but I was a bit bored and didn't like how she voiced some of the other "forum writers" as snotty sounding. It was a bit rude in my opinion or assuming.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.
