Modern families are ripe for simplification. Overbooked activity schedules, two working parents and the "do-it-all" mentality stress families with too many commitments and too little time. St. James, author of Living the Simple Life, Inner Simplicity and Simplify Your Life, turns her attention to ideas for families in this recorded program. With clear, direct discussion of scenarios that complicate family life, St. James offers ideas to cut through the clutter of busy lives. She starts with the specifics of baby paraphernalia, pets, TV viewing and then deals with broader issues of communication and schedules. With the focus on family relations and interaction, St. James's suggestions provide a sensible parenting guide. Her clarity and simple expression make this an accessible program from which listeners can take away lots of "good ideas." Many of her examples bring smiles of recognition, and her description of keeping the family car "battle-ready" is a treat. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
