(This course will be presented live for 8 Tuesdays starting January 22, 2013. There's no problem if you can't attend live because we will record each session and email the link to you the same day. You will have several weeks to view each session.)

I am so glad you are considering joining me in this webinar series to reflect, learn, and practice Simplicity Parenting.

I know from many years of experience helping families to simplify, that even small changes you bring into your home can have lasting effects for your children and for you.


In a webinar series like this we can slow down and gently go deeper into finding sensible and do-able ways to bring greater connection, balance and a feeling of inner spaciousness to your parenting.


You will be joining with thousands of other parents around the world who have found the practice of Simplicity Parenting has been the answer to that uneasy feeling that "something is not right."


I sure hope you'll enjoy this personal, step-by-step approach to implementing the ideas in my book, Simplicity Parenting, into your own family life.

Good Luck! Have fun simplifying and then enjoy the benefits!


With warm good wishes,

Kim John Payne

About the format

This course will be offered online for 8 weeks starting Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 from 10am-11:15am Pacific Time, 1pm-2:15pm Eastern Time, each week (go to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock to find the correct time in your area). The first week will be about 1 hour long but then in subsequent weeks, Kim will spend 15 minutes or so at the beginning of each class to answer questions from the week before- so sessions will be around 1 hour 15 minutes. Because of Kim's travel schedule, there will be two weeks where we will not have class (Feb 19 & Mar 19).


The full dates for this course are:

January 22, 29. February 5, 12, 26. March 5, 12, 26.
