We are so pleased to announce a free talk for parents with Kathy Rinden of Pasadena Waldorf School on Tuesday, January 28th!


Raising Resilient, Confident and Courageous Children with Kathy Rinden
Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Young children are in need of many skills as they find their way into the world beyond home.  There are ways for parents to encourage and support their child as they strive to develop their own internal sense of security and trust, allowing them to move forward with courage into the unknown.

Come and join us as we explore ways in which parents can be most supportive of their child’s growing sense of trust and wellbeing.  Learn how to address some common areas where children need help in order to become flexible in their feelings, stretching through their discomforts in order to find true comfort, capacity, and self-assurance.

Given by Kathy Rinden, Waldorf Early Childhood teacher and mentor, from Pasadena Waldorf School

This talk is FREE and open to all interested parents and educators!  Please RSVP!

Maple Village is pleased to offer The Simplicity Parenting Workshop in the evenings beginning Wednesday October 9th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM. On-site childcare can be arranged in advance. This 7-week series is open to anyone who would like to register, whether or not you have a child enrolled at MVS.

Children can suffer from “too much” – too much stuff, too many choices, too much information, and much of it too fast. Allow your child to become calmer, happier, and more cooperative while investing in your own parenting journey.

Experience a facilitated blend of support, learning, reflection and practice designed to bring relief to stressed children and families, based on the book, Simplicity Parenting, Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids by Kim John Payne.

Learn how to simplify and slow down the home environment, create predictable and connecting rhythms, simplify the schedule, and filter out adult concerns.  Go beyond the book, to explore ways to connect your parenting style with your values, design small doable changes and practice meditation and conversation skills proven to enhance family harmony.

Consider making a commitment to bring more peace to your family by carving out this time in a safe, supportive space to tune out the static of the busy world, and tune into your own inner wisdom about the family you imagined.

Mary Van Geffen, a certified Simplicity Parenting Group Leader and former Maple Village parent, will facilitate. See the flyer below for registration info or visit SimplicityParentingWithMary.com.


* Please note: This is a separate class from Lisa McCarthy’s “Less Is More” parent education class this fall (see previous post).
