My guest on this episode of The AMPLIFY Show is world-renowned counselor, researcher, author, and parenting expert Kim John Payne. Even if you’re not a parent, I urge you to check out this episode for some really eye-opening research, as well as advice on self-regulation and dealing with our own issues as adults first. 



“It’s about how we can be better regulated when our kids are pressing our buttons…” -Kim John Payne


We talk about concrete and doable ways to make deep connections with our kids, de-escalate high emotions, and instill a sense of hope in our families. We also cover our current culture where overwhelm has become the norm and we are constantly trying to do more, be more, have more.  Kim’s Simplicity Parenting program aims to help you make small, doable changes, worry less – and enjoy more.
