I really feel that the approaches here take the pressure off parents to conform to a competitive and unsustainable model of consumption and overactivity. Also, while most books about simplifying can be summarised as "tidying your house up", Simplicity Parenting is genuinely different, as it focuses on the effects and benefits to children (and parents) of having, doing, planning, even talking less. Throughout the book the principle moods and motivations are simply love for childhood, and the real hope of being able to be genuinely good parents.
