Educator and consultant Kim John Payne presents an antidote for children who are over-scheduled and overwhelmed by too much information and a fast-paced consumer culture that threatens the pace and playful essence of childhood.

Though simplicity parenting may seem a stretch for some, others will find that Payne's program for restoring creative play, order and balance is long overdue.
