How Simplicity Parenting 101 works:

Class starts on Monday, May 8th. Each week, for four weeks, you will:

Learn at your own pace: Every week, you'll receive videos with teachings, exploration and stories about the weekly topic. View on your computer, tablet, or even smartphone at your convenience. Not sure you can keep up? No problem! We're all busy-- that's why the course has two "catch-up weeks" built in, as well as lifetime access to all course material.

Dive deeper: You'll receive worksheets with activities designed to help you experientially explore the weekly topic, and to guide you through the process of crafting positive, sustainable changes to your daily family life.

Get specific, hands-on answers: Each week (Fridays at 11amPST/2pmEST), you'll take part in an hour-long live group coaching session where we will learn ways to apply what we are learning to the nitty-gritty moments of family life. Got questions for me? This is where we'll work together to find your answers.

Join our vibrant parent community: You'll participate in a lively class forum where you can ask questions, offer support and share ideas, articles and resources. This is the "cozy coffee shop" of the class, where we get to hang out, get to know each other and create community. I will check in daily to answer questions, address themes and swap stories.

And more: You'll receive links to relevant articles, blog posts and other workshops and classes I recommend, as well as book, craft and recipe recommendations!

Lisa creates a warm and welcoming space for parents to share, question and explore simpler choices together...this time reflecting and being reflected has been a highlight of my week and continues to inform my parenting path. Lisa brings a light heart and a celebratory spirit; she is lovely, highly-skilled and clearly dedicated to her own inner parenting work.

SonjaOne of Lisa's greatest strengths is presenting material in a way that it can be used without a lot of practice.  I notice immediate benefits at home after one of her classes.  She seems to continuously study because she always finds new information that fits the topic at hand.  I appreciate her mix of teaching, using guided meditations (one from a few years ago that I use to this day) personal mantras and experiences that make her classes relatable, down to earth and the most worthwhile parenting help I have found.

JenniferI recently took Simplicity Parenting 101 and loved it. I found it to be a parenting approach that is in alignment wth my deeper sense of relationship with my daughter. It's drawn my attention to being more present and creating a very valuable rhythm in our lives.  Lisa is an amazing teacher; her stories bring simplicity parenting to life and create a vivid reference point for the teachings. I highly recommend her courses and, personally, I can't get enough of them!

DreLisa's Simplicity Parenting 101 and Simplicity Summer Workshop have had an incredible impact on my parenting. I became a keen observer of my children's play and learned how and when we needed to make shifts in our activities. This had an extremely positive impact on my children. I saw less meltdowns and sibling conflicts! I've read lots of parenting books and have taking a couple other classes but I have to say, Lisa's class gave me some serious tools for my parenting toolbox that I have come to heavily rely on!

How often do you take time to consciously develop and hone your parenting skills?

How often to think about your guiding principles as a parent? How often do you make space to reflect thoughtfully on your parenting and to consciously make changes to create more joy and connection in your family?

If you’re like most parents today, the answer to these questions is “not often enough.”

And it’s no wonder! Most of us are so busy trying to keep up with the daily work of life and parenting that we spend almost no time developing our parenting skills, getting in touch with our inner-parenting wisdom or getting the support that we long for and deserve. 

By signing up for my Simplicity Parenting class, you can help change all that.

As parents who have taken my classes can tell you, setting aside the time and space to explore parenting issues in a deliberate and supportive manner can be nothing short of life-changing.

As a result of my classes, parents experience:

  • deeper connections to their children,
  • increased clarity in their parenting,
  • the ability to stay more present with their children,
  • less struggles with bedtime, getting out the door in the morning, and other daily transitions,
  • more connection over family meals,
  • less battles over chores and manners,
  • and many more of those small, joyful moments that all parents wish for.
