    If you already have dolls, limit the accessories. Rather than attending work or school, they make galettes for breakfast, read biographies on the couch, take afternoon bike rides down unknown trails. Create rhythm in the daily and weekly family life. By Tiffany 9 Comments Over the weekend I dived into a book I have been meaning to read for the past few weeks. In accessible language, he explains the relevance of current brain- and child-development studies to day-to-day parenting. I read it after reading a blog post on a mom blog about the benefits and joys of TV and how parents who try and restrict TV are being fear mongers.

    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. Nothing surprising there, but it turns out that if you put a frog in a pot of cold water, and slowly heat it to the boiling point, the frog will remain still, without any signs of struggle. But we had so many books neither one of us good find our favorites. With fewer choices, Payne explains, families have the freedom to "appreciate things and one another more deeply. Simplicity Parentingshould be on every parent's indeed, every person's reading list. But how could that be?

    He highlights some particular educational techniques, such as the Reggio Emilia approach and Forest kindergartensnotably the Secret Garden in Scotland, where the mature attitude to risk is contrasted with the health-and-safety mentality that is more generally taken. If so, ask to borrow them. Simplicity Parenting should be on every parent's indeed, every person's reading list. It compliments natural parenting very well in fact. Alongside the jests about how much children like to work, and so should be returned to Victorian workhouses, are points about letting children try to make their own breakfast while the parents sleepor camping in a field instead of going to an "antiseptic children's fun palace".
