Looking for parenting shortcuts to save you time, money and frustration?
Good thing we have Parent Hacks author Asha Dornfest on the latest Modern Dads Podcast.
Dornfest’s popular website has at last become a book, Parent Hacks: 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life with Kids. (We gave Parent Hacks a favorable review back on March 25.) Now she’s on the air with us talking time and money management ideas that will lead you to parenting success and some semblance of sanity.
Dornfest, the mother of two, speaks about some of the many parenting shortcuts moms and dads around the world have come up with to make their lives easier. She also discusses the online#ParentHacks community of thousands and thousands of moms and dads and all the community it has breed.
Dornfest’s writing career began in the 1990s by authoring a number of how-to books about Web publishing, one of which was Microsoft FrontPage For Dummies. That book went into several editions, making me a professional writer, after all.In 2013, Dornfest joined her my dear friend Christine Koh to co-write Minimalist Parenting, which details the “keep it simple” philosophy we’ve both come to in our different ways. In 2015, they expanded upon Minimalist Parenting with Edit Your Life, a weekly podcast about simplifying, decluttering and making room for the awesome in your life. Dornfest lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and two children.
The Parents’ Phrase Book author Whit Honea of our Los Angeles Dads Group also contributes to the end of this Modern Dads podcast. This time around, he explains what happened when his boys lost their electronics privileges over spring break.
