Imagine your life… with a sense of ease as you begin to limit distractions and say no to too much, too fast, too soon.

Today’s busier, faster, supersized society is waging an undeclared war . . . on childhood.

Kim John Payne's participation in API's 2015 AP Month celebration
"Parental Presence: Birthing Families, Strengthening Society"
helps families put in practice what we know is critical for investing in early secure attachment. Our lives cannot be too busy for our children.

Kim John Payne, M.ED,  is the author of the #1 Best Selling book, Simplicity Parenting©. Kim John Payne outlines in Simplicity Parenting© simple, orderly, and effective pathway to simplify four realms at home, which reduces stress on children and their parents, and allows room for connection, creativity, and relaxation.

These four realms for simplifying are:

  • Environment: De-cluttering too much stuff at home.
  • Rhythm: Increasing predictability by introducing rhythmic moments for connection and calm.
  • Scheduling: Soothing violent schedules brings moments for Being into all the Doing.
  • Unplugging: Reducing the influence of adult concerns, media and consumerism on children and families to increase resilience, social and emotional intelligence.

Kim John Payne’s message helps families recognize the importance of parental presence, even more so in this day and age when so many pressures are taking the focus away from connected parenting. By listening to Kim John Payne’s teleseminar you’ll walk away with a renewed focus for yourself and your family.
