How do minimalist parents handle summer?

NPR logoUpdate: The interview was fantastic! Christine called in from WBGH in Boston and I called in...from my bed in Portland. My heart really started pounding when I could hear the NPR broadcast on the phone.

If you missed it, here's the piece on the NPR website.

Christine and I will be discussing summertime strategies for minimalist parents on NPR’s Tell Me More today, 5/28.

This is a national radio program broadcast at different times in different cities. Find your local time on the NPR website (just scroll to the bottom of the page and select your state).

In the meantime, leave a comment here, or talk to us on Twitter (@minparenting) or on the Minimalist Parenting page on Facebook.

  • Summer overscheduling: problem or solution (to zoning out in front of a screen)?
  • Strategies vary based on whether parents are working or at home (or working at home). What works for you?
  • How do you hope this summer will go for your family?

Hope you’ll tune in. Exciting!
