Summary "'Just too busy' is the story of the Kraft family's head-on collision with busyness and the twelve-month experiment that changed their lives. When their children could recite the dollar value meals at McDonald's faster than their times-tables, Joanne and Paul Kraft knew something was very wrong. So, instead of continuing their busyness habit and fitting more into their schedules, they took a year off from all extracurricular activities and learned how to be a family again. In this book, readers will laugh their way to learning the ten telltale signs and they're just too busy and find the courage to guard their families from the temptation of constant distraction" --Cover, p. 4.
