Advance Praise for Slow Family Living

"In a society set on having it all, Slow Family Living points out -- Wait! You already have what you need. All you have to do is slow down and appreciate it. Bernadette Noll’s book helps us reject the time- and money-wasters we've been sold on, and savor the most golden thing we've got -- time, especially time together."
—Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids

“Bernadette Noll has a long track record helping families slow down and find the pace of life that suits them best. How lucky we are that she has now distilled her experience into a wise and readable book. Slow Family Living is packed with practical ways to bring joy and sanity back to family life and give our children a childhood worthy of the name. In this overstimulated, crazy-busy, roadrunner culture of ours, every family needs a copy.”
—Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow and Under Pressure

“Slowing down and making time for the gestation of your own ideas and being conscious of your own process are the foundations of both genius and happiness. Rather than letting the pace of the world determine your own family’s pace, Slow Family Living encourages everyone to step back from the craziness and determine their own rhythms and routines. The pauses are integral not only to happiness but to pure unadulterated brilliance.”
—Gever Tulley, author of 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do)

“Bernadette Noll, one of my favorite authors, offers essential advice for healthy family living: Slow down and be present with yourself and your loved ones. Her 75 "recipes" for slow family living are down-to-earth and easy to implement. This book is a real gem, a peaceful haven in a sea of over-stimulation.”
—Peggy O'Mara, founder of Mothering.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is the real deal. 7. März 2013
Von Heather McLeod - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I can't even begin to list my favorite suggestions out of the seventy-five in this book for families looking to slow down and connect. Bernadette Noll has written a book our culture desperately needs--a guide for how to take our lives back from the frenzied, screen-obsessed, consumerist, achievement-based merry-go-round we find ourselves riding if we're not careful. This book reminds us that we don't have to take the ride. We can get off. And the relationship with our children, which stretches far past their actual childhood, will be transformed if we do. It's just a fact.

This isn't one of those self-help books that lectures you and tells you to do all these things that feel extreme, that you would never actually do, that just sound good on paper. The tone of this book is what I love most of all, in fact. I get the feeling that Bernadette Noll isn't prescribing anything, she's just sharing some stuff she's learned from friends and from her own life, and encouraging readers to adapt the ideas that feel right to them in ways that work for their families. Reading the book is a joyful thing, and might be emotional for some people (ahem). There's just such sweetness in these pages, so many opportunities to connect and be seen -- for your children, for you and your partner (if you have one), and for your family as a whole. It's about finding moments of love and celebration in the day-to-day. It's putting your family unit first and feeling good about that. In so doing, you're squeezing every drop of goodness out of this life that you possibly can. And I think that's kind of her point.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Something here for every family 10. März 2013
Von Jennifer Donovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you ask a mother of school-age children about her week, I would bet one of the first words that will spring to her mind is "busy." Juggling children's activities, work and/or volunteer service, household maintenance (we all have to eat and need clean clothes to wear) eats quickly into those 24 hours we all have each day. But even if we manage to get everything done, do we ever ask ourselves, "Is this working for us?"

That is one of the approaches Bernadette Noll suggests in this book. Each short chapter gives one way that you can do what the subtitle says: slow down, be more connected or joyful in your day-to-day lives, and just enjoy each other more. Each idea won't work for each family, but I guarantee you something will work for you.

One that touched me is the "do over." Do you ever answer a child's question in a much snippier tone than he deserves? Does your child ever answer you with a disrespectful tone in her voice? Either party can just call "do over!" Then the question and the answer are repeated. Humor is effective to diffuse a situation, and it's a great way to get your point across about respectful communication without having a big lecture session.

Other ideas that you might want to learn about:

alternatives to organized sports
effective listening
practical ways to move from fast to slow
experiencing fun and togetherness while doing chores

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great ways to live better in a hectic world 9. März 2013
Von Jogues - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Great to have real world, practical and insightful tips for slowing down the craziness of life with kids. My wife and I have 3 young boys and already struggle with the demands. We know there are better ways, but it can be hard to figure out how. This book is full of useful ways to strip away the things that don't matter, that distract and focus on the things that really matter.

Heartfelt thanks to Bernadette Noll and the rest of the Slow Family Movement!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creative Ideas, Helpful Format 6. Mai 2014
Von Alycia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a creative, concise, and quick read for families looking for more connection. Its list-like format features 75 ways to “slow down, connect, and create more joy.” The author is a mother of four who shares some really novel ideas—you can tell she’s been there and done that! Here are a few teasers:

My Favorite “Chapters”:
-Slow Sports
-Just Ten Extra Minutes
-This I Believe
-Slow Holidays
-May the Circle Be Open

Favorite Quotations:
“In the face of society’s messages, however, to speed up, sign up, join up, and hurry up, the reality can be a bit more difficult to achieve without a little guidance.” xv

“Though raising a family isn’t always fun and games, we can make it so that joy and connection are the baseline we can return to time and time again. Sometimes it’s in the method, and other times it’s simply in the mind-set.” xvi

“Slow Family Living is about believing that family life can be the well, rather than the drain.” xvii

“[The Slow Family Living Manifesto] was born out of our belief that family life is being hijacked by societal messages that more is better and faster is greater and that you and your children are at risk of being left behind, unless you buy in now.” xxi

4.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Mother Daughter Book Club. com 18. März 2013
Von Cynthia Hudson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you ever feel that family life is like being on a speeding treadmill in a never-ending rush from one chore or activity to another, take heart. A book by Bernadette Noll, cofounder of SlowFamilyLiving.com, has a few ideas for how to slow that treadmill run to a walk.

Noll and her husband have four children and plenty of family commitments, so she's had experience juggling schedules and slowing her own family life down so both parents and children can spend time together, getting to know one another and developing healthy bonds. As part of SlowFamilyLiving.com, she's given workshops to other parents on achieving a slower pace in their own lives.

Noll's book, Slow Family Living: 75 Simple Ways to Slow Down, Connect, and Create More Joy, brings her suggestions to everyone who needs them. Noll is quick to say that she doesn't have all the answers and her guide is only a start to implementing small changes that can bring big changes for families. Yet the simple suggestions found in its pages are likely to generate even more ideas from harried moms and dads who read them.

Noll doesn't suggest dropping out of activities all together, rather she suggests an approach that asks parents and children to consider the things that are most important to them, and then implement changes that will make sure those are the things that get done.

For instance, Noll says one of the questions to be asked with any family routine or activity is, "Is this working for us?" Too often we make commitments or accept invitations without considering the impact it has on the rest of our time. Noll suggests not answering right away when offered the opportunity to take on something new. Instead, she recommends taking time to reflect on how the new thing will relate to everything else going on and if it's truly worth it.

The short, simple suggestions found in Slow Family Living are easy to digest quickly then return to and ponder for a while. After all, Noll knows that what works in one family may not work for another. She doesn't give set prescriptions, rather she invites parents to think about what's important in their own lives and gives them ideas for how to achieve it. Slow Family Living is a resource you'll want to keep handy to refer to often as you work to create the kind of family life you want to be happy with as your children grow.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
