Today’s busier, faster, technology-centric society is compromising childhood. Faced with too much stuff, too many choices, too much information and too little time, children become anxious and overwhelmed, have trouble with friends and school, or may even be diagnosed with behavioral problems.
In his critically acclaimed book, Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids, internationally renowned author and family consultant, Kim John Payne, offers a clear 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.
On November 1st and 2nd, as part of the new Seacoast Simplicity Parenting Center, Seacoast Waldorf School will be hosting Kim for a lecture and parent/educator workshop.
Nov. 1 Simplicity Parenting Lecture
On Friday, November 1st from 7-9pm, Kim explains why “less is more” and presents a step-by-step process you can take to help your child feel calmer, happier and more secure.
- Step One: Simplify your environment
- Step Two: Simplify food and mealtimes
- Step Three: Simplify your family’s schedule
- Step Four: Simplify the amount of information and involvement about the adult world
These changes ultimately reduce stress on parents and provide more opportunity for care, connection
and creativity with their children.

In the workshop on Saturday, November 2nd, 9am-1pm, Kim dives deeper into pathways-to-simplicity, allowing attendees to work one-on-one with Kim and other parents in attendance to discuss the lecture and address other parenting concerns, such as discipline and social resilience.
