Ah, my favorite Idle Parent theme...nice.
Positively reviewed by two of my favourite authors

I like the Idle Parent's working ideas of rejecting consumerism, being creative and being thrifty. I hope we can raise non-consumerist kids who enjoy what they have instead of constantly wanting something.

Our son has so much fun this weekend with a kid's party where they made pizza in a wood pizza oven followed by a sleepover with his best friend at ours. They were self-entertained together for ages and didn't ask once for TV or Wii (his friend has an older brother).

Being a chauffeur to our kids was something we were thinking about when we chose where to live. We live close to town and sacrifice size for a great location. Our garden is big enough for the kids (and already too much work for me) and our kids can make their own ways around when they are old enough.
