Is your child having trouble sleeping, eating, or socializing? Are you wondering how the reality of your family life veered so far away from your dreams? Learn how using the extraordinary power of less can help you raise calmer, happier, and more secure kids, and feel more confident as a parent.

Based on the work of Kim John Payne, M. Ed., the Simplicity Parenting movement shows the value of building deeper, more genuine relationships with your children.

Anne Shapiro will lead the Simplicity Parenting Introductory Lecture and Class. Anne is a parenting coach who offers individualized and group sessions in the Simplicity Parenting approach. She is also the featured columnist in this issue of “Our Voice” for the Simple Holidays Q&A feature.

Two separate 5-class series will begin the following week. There is a $100 fee for the class series. One class series will focus on 3 to 7 year olds, the other on 8 to 12 year olds. Enroll in the class series that suits you. Each five-class series will:

have 8 to 12 participants, 5 group sessions spread over five weeks
be an effective blend of warm support, learning, and discussion
use new understanding of how we can make change happen
support sustainable changes for simplifying your family life
enhance loving connection at home

February 9, 3:00pm

Internationally renowned vaudevillians, Wells & Woodhead, will perform their one of a kind antics for family audiences at the Shelburne Town Hall on February 9, at 3:00 PM. Their new show, FOOLZ, is a character-driven amalgam of music, comedy and juggling that visually demonstrates the power of teamwork.

Blending classic vaudeville routines with cutting edge humor, FOOLZ offers up something for everyone. Wells & Woodhead’s signature grand finale is a one of a kind frenzied, frenetic juggling consortium of chairs, guitars, bird ages, umbrellas and rubber chickens that leaves the audience with a sense that anything is possible.

Danish borne Henrik Bothe, with his electrifying plate and rope spinning routines, joins local Charlotte entertainer Woody Keppel, who has entertained audiences around the world for over two decades with his whacky and endearing character, Woodhead.

Recent appearances include: the nationally televised Chinese Comedy Festival from Beijing, The HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, Paris’ “Le Plus Grande Cabaret Du Monde”, (Europe’s top-rated TV show), and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Proceeds will benefit the Lake Champlain Waldorf School.

Best suited for ages 3 – 103
