You know about Parents Hacks right? Only one of the best sites out there giving you hacks parents have created to make their parental lives easier.
Well those bloggers have written a book called Minimalist Parenting. No, they don’t tell you to throw out all your possessions and move to a hut. This is from their site:
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, overparented 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, decluttering the home space, simplifying mealtimes, streamlining recreation, and prioritizing self-care. Filled with parents’ personal stories, readers will come away with a unique plan for a simpler life.
Tomorrow they are starting their Mini-Camp—the companion workshop to Minimalist Parenting. No, you don’t need to buy the book. For two weeks, they’ll email you one doable task per day that will help you simplify and streamline your home and life. We focus on the topics most of us find challenging: time (we need more!) stuff (we need less!) meals (we need simple and healthful) self-care (we need a moment for ourselves)
Plus: you’ll earn MERIT BADGES. It’s free and I’m doing it.
