book club: Simplicity Parenting discussion questions list

It’s time to start our discussion of Simplicity Parenting. Below you’ll find the list of questions those of you participating in this round of the PAIL book club have submitted.

Also, even if you haven’t signed up yet, there is still time to join in! Posts reviewing the book are not due until February 28th, so just click here if you want to get the details and sign up!

Here are the discussion questions that were submitted. They are meant to help you think more in-depth about the book, but feel free to write on any aspect of the book at all.

  • What is your “vision” for your family?
  • How do you think your life circumstances are uniquely suited/not suited to Payne’s message?
  • What do you all think would be the hardest things for you to change to simplify your life according to Payne’s suggestions?
  • Did anything in the book resonate particularly strongly with you?
  • How do you feel about Payne’s proposed ban on “adult topics” with
    kids? In your family, what do you intend to discuss with or keep from
    your kids?
  • What do you think about Payne’s theory of children having “Cumulative Stress Disorder?” Have you seen examples of it in real life?

Remember, posts are due February 27th and February 28th the complete list of participating blogs will be posted on PAIL’s main page!
