Simplicity Parenting & The Strange Situation: Exploring the Roots of Security and Self-Regulation

December 05 - December 05, 2020

Bethany Saltman

Kim John Payne

We're all experiencing one of the strangest, most challenging periods in our lives. And for parents, the pressure’s on. How can we be the wise and loving support we know our children deserve? Especially when we’re stressed to the max? How can we move through the shame of our imperfections to show up for our kids? The answer lies in the science of attachment, neuroscience and mindfulness: we parents must take care of ourselves. In fact, from a scientific and Buddhist point of view, self-care IS child-care. It’s never been more important for parents to learn how to regulate themselves.

In this one-day workshop renowned authors and parenting experts Kim John Payne and Bethany Saltman will share some of the most fascinating research that will help parents understand why self-regulation is so important, and then offer tools for “being at your best when your child is at their worst.”
