Review

“This book is a wake-call for all of us who have misjudged what children need and can handle, and who have wandered so far from the best practices that we are raising neurologically damaged and emotionally stunted human beings as a result. Simplicity Parenting arises from dialogues with real people, from their questions and their needs. Kim John Payne is sharp, funny, and wise, and–best of all–he has something shattering but positive to say to an America that is struggling to know how to live.” —Steve Biddulph, author of "The Secret of Happy Children

“If you are raising children in these anxious times, you need this book. It will inspire you, reassure you, and, most important of all, it will remind you that less is more, that simplicity trumps complication, that rhythm and routine bring peace to the soul.

If you are raising children in these anxious times, you need this book. It will inspire you, reassure you, and, most important of all, it will remind you that less is more, that simplicity trumps complication, that rhythm and routine bring peace to the soul. In this profound and practical guide, Kim John Payne offers parents a doable, step-by-step approach to simplifying everyday family life, from the toy box to the dinner table. In the process, he reveals to us the rewards to be found in slowing down, savoring our children s childhoods, and more fully enjoying our own adult lives. Katrina Kenison, author of Mitten Strings for God
Simplicity Parenting takes the unusual and unusually wise stance that sometimes less can be more. Less as in less frenetic activity, less racing around, less clutter. Payne provides practical strategies for turning down the volume and creating a pace that fosters calmness, mindfulness, reflection, and individuality in children. Simplicity Parenting should be on every parent s (indeed, every person s) reading list. Kathleen A. Brehony, Ph.D., author of Awakening at Midlife

Brilliant, wise, informative, innovative, entertaining, and urgently needed, this timely book is a godsend for all who love children, and for children themselves. It provides a doable plan for providing the kind of childhood kids desperately need today! Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

Kim John Payne helps parents better understand one of the most challenging issues of our time the hurried, materialistic, competitive, highly pressured nature of today s childhood. After reading Simplicity Parenting, parents new mantra will be less builds security, sanity, and connection. And they will have the tools they need for implementing this mantra in their families. Diane E. Levin, Ph.D., co-author of So Sexy So Soon
