idle parent

…This is based on one of my favorite parenting books of all time, The Idle Parent, by Tom Hodgkinson.

It borrows a lot from my most-est best-est favorite book, The Continuum Concept, and sort of modernizes it.

The Idle Parent makes the ideas a little more accessible, a little more hip, now, current and presents them with a wicked twist – especially for parenting older children. I whole-heartedly recommend the book, except for three pages (If I remember the count correctly, it’s been a while.)
