Event description

Description

Join us for this 5-week course of lively discussion and practical implementation of the concepts shared in the book, Simplicity Parenting, by Kim John Payne.

The book's concepts will be within the context of parenting children from babyhood to 2nd Grade and as Payne's book Soul of Discipline describes, as parents in the Governor Stage of parenting. Join us for the morning or evening course on Thursdays this summer! The group will meet in the New High School Classroom located on the school's campus.
