simplicity parenting

Our fourth volume of PAIL’s book club was “Simplicity Parenting, Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids.” The book was really in-depth and offered a lot to think about. Below are the prompts we offered to think about the book and the links to those who wrote posts about it. If you didn’t get a chance to write a post feel free to chime in by sharing a comment below.

Writing Prompts were:

  • 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?
