keep listening

Granted, after 3-4 chapters you will feel like you've heard it all. But before you decide to leave this book, listen to Chapter 10.

Must read for every parent

This books credibly outlines why and how we should reclaim our lives for the sake of our sanity and our children’s childhood. Through simplifying stuff, rhythms, discipline, schedules and more, we can reap the benefits of a more meaningful relationship with our kids, others and ourselves. I have experienced first hand how these practices can work.
