Volkswagen Caravelle - defrosting it on cold mornings

How can I defrost my car windscreen (VW Caravelle) on cold mornings without running the engine for 20 minutes and waking the family?

Or how do I stop it freezing in the first place?

Dehumidifiers inside the car. Low voltage electric heater inside the car. Run the engine while you are scraping the ice off because you can't go anywhere then anyway.
