Great reading--every parent should consider,

This review is from: Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book. While I'm not a parent yet, I tend to read a lot on the subject to shape what kind of parent I want to be in the future. All the suggestions and reasoning was excellent in this book--it makes you consider the overstimulated lives of not only children, but adults. A lot of what Payne says can be helpful for anyone's life.
The only reason I didn't give this book five stars is because sometimes Payne's prose can drag a bit. The patient examples and references to studies are fascinating, but at times his explanations can get a bit repetitive and wordy. But, perhaps I felt this way because I've read a lot on the subject of simplicity parenting, so I felt like I already was familiar with what he was talking about and didn't need so much explanation.
Overall, though, a definite read. Will make you rethink the world we introduce to our kids.

This is a great review of this book. It is hard to read because it does drag, but the patient examples are good reinforcements.
