Simplicity Parenting is a multi-layered, systems approach for decreasing cumulative stress in children’s and families’ lives.Research has shown that this comprehensive approach, based on the work and highly acclaimed book Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne, M.Ed., is effective in addressing and decreasing a range of clinical and subclinical symptoms, including attention difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, anxiety, difficulties with sleep, and a host of stress-related behavioral and emotional symptoms.
During a private session with one or both parents I can:
Help families build resiliency in their children
Improve specialized treatment and/or care effectiveness by helping to bring balance and calm to child’s home life
I can provide support, guidance and a listening ear for parenting challenges such as:
Crying and separation
Sleep and bedtimes
Difficult behavior; tantrums, hitting, bitting, using 'fighting' words...
Daily transitions; at home, at daycare, at school....
Transition through significant life events; divorce, death, moving, parent going back to work...
