Could it be true that our children are so broken that we need to medicate them into compliance with societal expectations? Or has our society become so complex, that our children have become overwhelmed by the many demands placed upon them? Kim John Payne suggests returning simplicity to our children’s lives to reengage their sense of security and creativity in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast June 2, 2015.

Kim John Payne, M.ED, is the author of the bestselling books, Simplicity Parenting and The Soul of Discipline. He has been a school counselor, adult educator, consultant, researcher, educator and a private family counselor for 27 years. In each role, he has helped children, adolescents and families explore issues such as social difficulties with siblings and classmates, attention and behavioral issues at home and school, emotional issues such as defiance, aggression, addiction and self-esteem and the vital role living a balanced and simple life brings.

SO great to see Kim John Payne on Gaiam. I have a well-worn copy of Simplicity Parenting and had the pleasure of working with Kim for a few years at my school. His positive impact on my (now teenaged) children is immeasurable. (And I still LOVE/NEED the reminders here. :-)

Kim John Payne is Awesome! We are a Waldorf family and have followed his "simplicity" parenting for years! this approach to parenting just makes so much sense!
Thank you Regina!

Regina, thank you for continuing to bring to us interviews with such amazing people. I would never find these people without your help. I loved this one!

thank you. ive been a mother for 35 years and working on my last teen ager currently. ive always relied on the KISS method of parenting. ( mostly just for my own sanity and savings account LOL) but nice to see that I was doing my kids a favor as well. the biggest thing ive learned all these years was how to look after myself more than anything. just enjoyed this interview a great deal. parenting doesn't come with a manual, but if it did, I would prefer that the manual was just a couple of pages long. thank you John for appreciating and exposing that there is value in just being there and learning along with your child
