Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest’s recently released book is called MINIMALIST PARENTING: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less (bibliomotion books + media; Paperback Original; $19.95; March 19, 2013). Both parents themselves, Koh is the founder of and Dornfest is the founder of – they’re the perfect guides to navigate you through all that conflicting background noise.

MINIMALIST PARENTING is Koh and Dornfest’s prescription for how to handle too much of a good thing. Their intention isn’t to tell you how to parent; it’s to show you how to find your own parenting “right.”

At the heart of the book is formal permission to step off the modern parenting treadmill. If you do so, you’re not blowing your children’s shot at success — just the opposite. Living a joyous life that’s in line with your values (instead of some manufactured version of “successful” modern parenthood) will give your kids room to grow into the strong, exceptional people they are meant to be.

The authors also show readers there is in fact enough time to fully engage in parenting while still caring for yourself, your work, and your relationships. You have enough expertise, enough love, enough stuff, and enough confidence to give your kids an extraordinary childhood and a running start on a happy adulthood. That is, Koh and Dornfest argue, if you minimalize to “make room for remarkable.”

Far more than the average parenting book, MINIMALIST PARENTING is backed by the authors’ personal experience and is filled with other parents’ personal stories as well. Readers will come away with the inspiration and pragmatics to craft a family life that is uniquely and happily theirs.

    To me, minimalist parenting means pretty much what the authors of this book are getting at. It’s finding a balance between guiding your kids and letting them discover the joys and pitfalls of the world on their own. I think it is a difficult balance to find, but very worthwhile.

    I think its finding a balance with the parents and childen in decision making – also every action has a reaction.

    parenting only when necessary? I sound clueless!

  12. Clarice says:

    To me minimalist parenting is about finding a balance between wanting to help your children find their way through life holding their hand and actually letting them experience things them self. Also just about doing your best with what you’re given day by day

  13. Still letting kids be kids and letting them explore and grow on their own.

  14. Erica Best says:

    finding a balance with love.

  15. Suzanne C says:

    It means assisting them in growing but not overpowering or overshadowing who they are becoming. Fostering their growth into their own individual self.

    Finding a balance to become a better parent.

  17. Anna S. says:

    I’ve read a bunch of parenting books since becoming a mother five years ago. Most of them are well-researched and provide good advice and techniques. But as much as I want to become a better parent, I end up resorting back to what comes naturally to me. I consider myself a minimalist in other areas of my life, so just the idea of Minimalist Parenting resonates with me. I am very excited to read this book!
