Clutter-Free Parenting: Making Space for the Magic of Childhood and Joy of Parenthood
 by Laura Forbes Carlin with Alison Forbes Van Hook

Imagine living a clutter-free life.  Imagine creating a home you love and regaining the time and energy that clutter depletes. Imagine being present to enjoy the magical and joyful time childhood and parenthood can be. Imagine raising confident, compassionate children who have the space to explore their passions, learn, grow and have fun– undistracted by an endless stream of “things” they don’t need and really don’t want.

Clutter-Free Parenting by Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes Van Hook is a life-changing book that will show you how to clear clutter and live the life you and your family long for. This step-by-step guide is an inspiring journey to clearing both inner and outer-clutter. By ridding our surroundings, and ourselves, of things that do little but weigh us down, we not only transform our homes, but our lives and the lives of our children.

Discover how easily you can stop feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and defeated before the day even begins.  Based on the transformative practices and principles of two sisters – cofounders of Inspired Everyday Living – Laura and Alison outline a simple four-step process for clearing clutter and offer tips specific to children’s clutter such as clothes, artwork, and toys. Learn the four keys to preventing children’s clutter from accumulating in the first place, as well as guidelines for how and when to involve children in decluttering. With tools for practicing self-care, and suggestions for how to create bedrooms that support sleep, you will have more time and energy to enjoy the things that truly matter.  And your children will too.

“The four step process in this book transformed our home, and our kids get along better, sleep better, and just seem to be a whole lot happier.”
-New York Times best selling author Michael Levin
