This October we will be finishing up Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne. If you’ve missed the blog posts related to the book feel free to check them out on APTly Said. This has been a wonderful book that covers the topics of why it is important to filter the world out, why simplification is imperative to keeping childhood innocence, how to implement simplification into your family structure, how environment plays a huge role in the influence of your children, the importance of rhythm and schedules, etc. It has been a wonderful read and we encourage you to take a chance to read it as well.
As a special treat, in honor of API’s October AP Month, we’ll also have Kim John Payne as a guest speaker with API Live on October 19th at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to ask your questions and round out the book with even more clarity. Register for the event today!!!
