A worthwhile listen for new parents

What did you like best about Simplicity Parenting? What did you like least?

I never realized that by providing my child with too much stuff; too many toys, books, options, that I might be creating a monster. The author's emphasis on reducing clutter, noise and getting rid of toys that offer little imaginative use is something that is invaluable information for any age child. That being said, the information does get a little redundant after awhile.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator has a horrible monotonous voice was absolutely no affect or depth. His reading is completely flat and makes even compelling information a downer!

Where does Simplicity Parenting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top, Im listening to it again for motivation.

What did you like best about this story?

It is simple, everyone can do it. However with companies out there spending billions to get us to buy all the crap, it's nice to have a little book to keep our minds on the right track,

What about Arthur Morey’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to. His "s" sounds were a little loud, but I was listening for the info and content not for the readers voice.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Getting rid of all the clutter and stuff, and the child will be happy about the "anti-Christmas". I tried it and it was VERY true!
