Deep Simplicity in Parenting

With Kim John Payne

May 19 - 21, 2023

In this workshop, Kim explains why less is more and presents five simplicity pathways you can take to help your child feel calmer, happier and more secure. This is the theme and the workshop which provided the inspiration for Kim’s book by the same name (published in August 2009 & 2019 2nd ed.). It presents not only the five simple steps but also examples of how to bring “the power of less” into your home on a daily basis.
So much of modern life seems to be about more. Very few workshops you will attend will suggest that you do less, but this is one of them. It quietly presents ‘do-able’ daily ways in which we can simplify our families lives and by doing so build resiliency within our children, tween and teens.
