Publisher Comments:

In Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, Richard Carlson showed us how to prevent the little things in life from causing big aggravations. In Don't Worry, Make Money, he taught us how to earn a good living while staying relaxed and worry-free. Now, in Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family, Carlson offers 100 simple yet revolutionary strategies for cultivating the empathetic, kind, and gentle part of ourselves at home, for greater peace with and enjoyment of our families.

We all know that far too often, when we get caught up in work, we take the stress of the day home with us ... to the detriment of ourselves and our families. Now Richard Carlson shows us how to leave work at the office and take a thoughtful approach to life at home. This includes deepening our appreciation of being with our families and learning to be a nourishing and attentive parent who doesn't get stressed out by the little things in home life. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family also tells stay-at-home moms and dads how to decrease stress as much as possible when caring for children around the clock.

Written in Richard Carlson's signature warm and appealing style for everyone who loved his first major national bestsellers, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family is certain to be one of this season's inspirational bestsellers.

Synopsis:

"While it's easy to allow little things to take over our lives, there are things we can do to make life around the house less stressful," writes Richard Carlson in Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with Your Family: Simple Ways to Keep Daily Responsibilities and Household Chores from Taking Over Your Life. In this collection of 98 brief essays, Carlson (author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ... And It's All Small Stuff) meditates on small, but meaningful ways to avoid being overwhelmed by life, particularly family life. From Number 8: Make Peace with Bickering, to Number 14: Encourage Boredom in Your Children, to Number 72: Stop Exaggerating Your Workload, Carlson's messages serve as reminders for truisms most readers already know but have lost sight of in the bustle of daily life. Carlson's "ways" may be simple, but simplicity is not stupid--his book offers vital injections of wisdom. --Ericka Lutz
