SIMPLICITY PARENTING

 

CONSULTATION & COUNSELLING

SIMPLICITY PARENTING

... is a supportive and compassionate parenting modality created by educator Kim John Payne. Its core tenet is to help parents tune in to their household rhythms and tune out the external pressures of too much, too soon; thereby creating a safe and calm home life.

Simplicity Parenting is an effective model for children, tweens, and teens. Its introduction into your household can be seamless no matter the ages of your children.
This modality can be explored effectively by individuals, couples and groups.

Please see Simplicity Parenting for more information and resources.

I invite you to book a one hour Introductory Consultation Session for $90. If you care to proceed through the Seven Week Program, I will adjust the fee to reflect the payment.

CHAPTER TOPICS

1.    Why Simplify? ~ to be covered in introduction session

    2.    Soul Fever ~ a compassionate reframing of the temper tantrum


    3.    Environment
 ~ decluttering & simplifying your child's physical environment
    4.    Rhythm

    5.    Schedules

    6.    Filtering Out the Adult World ~ the weight of the world is not our children's to bear
