Simplicity Parenting Lecture with Kim John Payne
Today's busier, faster society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. With too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time, children can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems.
Join author and renowned family consultant Kim John Payne for an evening lecture - learn how to use the extraordinary power of less to raise calmer, happier, more secure kids. Reclaim for your children the space and freedom that all kids need for their attention to deepen and their individuality to flourish. An evening of inspiration, ideas and a blueprint for change:
* Streamline your home environment. Reduce the amount of toys, books, and clutter and sensory overload.
* Establish Rhythms and rituals: Discover ways to ease daily tension, create battle-free mealtimes and bedtimes, and tell if your child is overwhelmed.
* Schedule a break in the schedule: Establish intervals of calm and connection in your child's daily torrent of constant doing
* Scale back on media and parental involvement: Manage your children's "screen time" to limit the endless deluge of information and stimulation.
A manifesto for protecting the grace of childhood, Simplicity Parenting is an eloquent guide to bringing new rhythms to bear on the lifelong art of raising children.
