Share Article

Three Cedars Waldorf School in Bellevue will host an introductory evening to “Simplicity Parenting,” based on the book by counselor and international consultant Kim John Payne.

Three Cedars Waldorf School in Bellevue is delighted to introduce a new form of parent coaching to help Eastside parents simplify their home lives and enrich their children’s development.

Are you close to crazy as a parent?
Suffering from the Terrible Too’s: too much, too many, too fast, too soon?
Not enough time, space, ease?
Feeling guilty as a parent?
Want to slow down, don’t know where to start?
Discover at Three Cedars Waldorf School how to simplify your parenting.

So many parents these days are afraid that their children have some kind of disorder. How, as a culture, did we get here? Where does the anxiety in our lives come from? How can we parent well?

Simplicity Parenting has been named one of the 14 Biggest Parenting Trends by ivillage.com

The event will center on teachings from the book “Simplicity Parenting,” by Kim John Payne, a consultant and trainer to more than 60 U.S. schools.

Four members of the Three Cedars Faculty and Staff - facilitators Kimberly Lacy, Monica Lander, Terri Hawkins, and Briana Bennitt - who have been personally trained by Kim John Payne and Davina Muse will lead the event.

This free introductory evening will give interested parents an opportunity to find out what “Simplicity Parenting” is all about, and a step beyond reading the book wherein parents form seven-week study groups (groups meet two hours per week) to support each other in bringing the simplifying changes that are longed for into family life.

Following the introductory evening, new Simplicity Parenting groups will be forming in May 2010. Please call 425.401.9874 with your questions. Summer groups will form beginning in July 2010.

This is one of the most interesting of the many blog articles about our work that we have seen:
"Another issue is that many parenting books seem to offer lots of strategies and tips in a very general way, which doesn't help you tune in to your parenting instinct. Or they espouse a great philosophy of parenting with no or very vague ideas about what this philosophy would look like on the front lines, so to speak. Well, at very long last I have found a book that I am willing to recommend to anyone who asks. Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids by Kim John Payne and Lisa M. Ross is, in my opinion, the perfect blend of philosophy, instinct, and how-to, and it's all backed by the kind of research and developmental information that makes you go, ‘Hmm.’"
