  • Simplicity Parenting Together
    January 16, 2018, 9:00 am - 11:00 am
    The Cricket on the Hearth Room, Early Childhood Building

    Simplicity Parenting Together
    a monthly workshop series (October-April)

    Led by Janet Lynch, M.Ed., Certified Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach & Hartsbrook Parent

    This 7-gathering series offers parents an opportunity to delve deeply into the
    benefits of simplifying home life, with the goal of reducing stress and creating
    greater family connection and ease. Within a warm, supportive community,
    participants explore Simplicity Parenting themes together through discussion and
    reflection exercises, and practice making small simplifying changes at home
    between gatherings.

    Kim John Payne’s internationally bestselling book Simplicity Parenting: Using the
    Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids is our
    inspiration in exploring new ways to recognize and respond to our children’s stress
    and overwhelm, unclutter our physical spaces, create daily rhythms, simplify our
    schedules and filter the adult world for our children.
    Join us on this transformative parenting journey together!

    Last year’s participants say:
    “Each meeting I walk away feeling hopeful about making small practical do-able
    changes in my life.”

    “I didn’t quite realize how powerful the group dynamic would be for me, or how
    much having that extra community of support around shared values would give
    me confidence in my parenting path.”

    “If you want to parent with your heart and eyes open, take this course.”
