Minimalist Parenting: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party
Choice is good, but the sheer magnitude of choice people face today is overwhelming, paralyzing actually. Never before have parents been faced with so many choices — of child-rearing philosophies, work schedules, educational options, savings plans, gadgets and gear, nutritional advice, and even entertainment possibilities for a family’s dwindling free time. The result? Overwhelmed, confused parents and overscheduled, over-parented kids.
And that’s where Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest’s upcoming book comes in: 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 BostonMamas.com and Dornfest is the founder of ParentHacks.com — they’re the perfect guides to help you navigate through all that conflicting background noise.
MINIMALIST PARENTING is Koh and Dornfest’s prescription for how to handle too much of a good thing. They’ll show you how to minimalize your family life — how to edit your schedule, possessions, and expectations so there’s more of what you love and care about and less of what you don’t. They’ve discovered that by simplifying and streamlining, parents can navigate past the self-doubt, guilt, and overwhelmed feelings inherent in today’s parenting climate to a place of clarity, connection, and most of all, fun.
