Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure KidsBook - 2010
Today's busier, faster, supersized society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. As the pace of life accelerates to hyperspeed-with too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time-children feel the pressure. They can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems. Now, in defense of the extraordinary power of less, internationally renowned family consultant Kim John Payne helps parents reclaim for their children the space and freedom that all kids need, allowing their children's attention to focus and their individuality to flourish. Parental hovering is really about anxiety; by doing less and trusting more, parents can create a sanctuary that nurtures children's identity, well-being, and resiliency as they grow-slowly-into themselves. A manifesto for protecting the grace of childhood, Simplicity Parenting is an eloquent guide to bringing new rhythms to bear on the lifelong art of parenting.
