Simplicity Parenting LECTURE with Kim John Payne
Lecture by renowned author and childhood counsellor Kim John Payne.
DETAILS: 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. Now internationally renowned family consultant Kim John Payne helps parents reclaim for their children the space and freedom that all kids need for their attention to deepen and their individuality to flourish. Ottawa parents won't want to miss Kim John Payne's compelling lecture, which offers inspiration, ideas, and a blueprint for change. For example:
Streamline your home environment. Reduce the amount of toys, books, and clutteras well as the lights, sounds, and general sensory overload.
Establish rhythms and rituals. Discover ways to ease daily tensions, 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.
Kim John Payne will also host a workshop to deepen the theme on Saturday morning, the 29th, 9am at Trille-des-bois public school, 140 Genest Street in Vanier. Get tickets here at Simplicity Parenting Workshop.
