This is a must read in my opinion for all parents who want to simplify their children's lives and their own. I love the way the author writes and I actually feel my own pace slow down just reading the book. We have implemented many of the suggested strategies (although we were not an out of control busy family at all!) and the change is so real and palpable! This book is a keeper and I will revisit it many times I am sure.

Sérieusement une lecture précieuse. Je l'ai lu assidument tous les soirs et je pense que le ménage que j'ai fait dans ma maison et ma nouvelle gestion de mon temps à franchement simplifié ma vie et celle de ma fille et de ma famille. Je le recommande chaleureusement.

I love this book. I love this book because I am a parent who reads lots of parenting books; so certain I could be a better parent. And finally this book--the first one in a stack of over 20, I might add--shows me that really, being a good parent is quite simple. It's a matter of getting rid of the clutter that makes it seem complicated--and in this day and age, we're great at clutter. It has changed my life, not just my parenting!

This was exactly the type of book I was looking for when I started my search. it was written in plain english (no big doctor words or studies to try and understand) has plenty of examples of how and why this works. Teaches us how to start simplifying a cluttered house in steps so that we, as parents, can better assist our children by providing them with quality over quantity and a heavy does of our own time and respect.

I would put it in my basket of books that every parent should read!

This was an overall pleasant and encouraging read. Some of the suggestions seem obvious...At the same time it is very accessible and not dogmatic, which I appreciated. I especially liked Payne's suggestions for reducing the number of toys and stuff; his suggestions were not unlike those I've heard anecdotally over the years - simpler toys w less noise, buttons, single-purpose features are better. I also found his suggestions for getting children involved in meal preparation interesting especially from an inspiring creativity and ownership in eating and household participation perspective. These types of practical suggestions were helpful.

I did find that although he claimed to be speaking to the issues of affluent, middle class, and poorer families alike, his examples really reflected the experiences of the normative centre families: heterosexual, middle-class-to-affluent, able-bodied, American families. It would have been nice to speak to some of the potentially particular experiences of families that don't conform to these dominant norms. While I myself fit w in the normative centre (except for not being American), I am sensitive to advice that might not be practical to those who don't. What about families who are poor and cannot afford (money and time-wise) some of the suggestions Payne makes? Many times parents are working multiple jobs to make ends meet, for e.g., and some suggestions may incite further guilt among already overburdened parents. The concerns of poorer families may not be with overscheduled lives w many extracurricular activities but putting food on the table, making rent, and having any time to spend with kids and other family and friends. I also felt some of the suggestions around activities for children were gender stereotyped (e.g.
