Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids:

Kim John Payne writes:

Imagine your home…

  • as a place where time more a little slower
  • becoming less cluttered and more visually relaxing
  • with space, and time, for childhood-and with time for one another every day
  • as a place where play and exploration are allowed, and honoured
  • having more ease as you begin to limit distractions and to say no to the stress of too much, too fast, too soon.
  • as a sense of calm and security take hold
  • becoming a place where those we love know it, by virtue of our attention, protection, and appreciation

“The most elemental and powerful reason to simplify is this: As your awareness of your children widens and deepens, so too will your love.” Kim John Payne
