It was a happy day when Susan Sachs Lipman’s new book, Fed Up With Frenzy: Slow Parenting in a Fast-Moving World, arrived in my mail box last month.
About a week before, while I was literally in the process of drafting an e-mail to invite Suz to contribute to my 10-Day Family Recharge, I received an e-mail from her inviting me to be part of the Fed Up With Frenzy Blog Tour.
It was a beautiful moment of synchronicity and connection, sweetened even more by Suz’s generous offer to send not only a copy of the book for my family, but a second copy to share with one of YOU!
Each chapter in Suz’s inspiring book, which covers topics like Slow Games, Slow Crafts, Slow Kitchen (and much more), is filled with simple, budget-friendly ideas of things to make, do and experience with your family.
But what really makes the book shine for me is Suz’s narrative.
Her words in the introduction, as well as at the start of each chapter, really speak to my heart and inspire me to take small steps each and every day to slow down and truly savor, celebrate and appreciate my beautiful family.
Lawrence Cohen, PhD, author of Playful Parenting, has the following to say about Suz’s book:
“The heart of parenting is connection, but how do parents and children connect when they are going a mile a minute in different directions? Read this book, stop the frenzy, and reconnect.”
I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Cohen’s words and highly recommend Suz’s book.
