SUMMIT, NJ - Best-selling author, parenting expert, and the father of the 'Simplicity Parenting' movement, Dr. Kim John Payne, will speak at The Winston School of Short Hills April 27 at 7 p.m.
 
'Simplicity Parenting' teaches parents how to worry and hover less, and how to enjoy more. For those who want to slow their children’s lives down but don’t know where to start, Simplicity Parenting offers both inspiration and a blueprint for change.
 
According to Payne, “Today’s busier, faster society is waging an undeclared war on childhood. With too much stuff, too many choices, and too little time, children can become anxious, have trouble with friends and school, or even be diagnosed with behavioral problems.”
 
 
“When the mission of The Winston School of Short Hills was established, the founding Trustees envisioned that the School would not only offer a tailored educational program to learning disabled children but would also serve as a resource for other schools and the community at large," said Head of School, Dr. Peter S. Lewis. 
 
In keeping with this mission, the Winston Speakers Series was launched in the mid-1990’s to offer yearly presentations on topics of interest to parents of school-age children as well as professionals and consultants.
 
Lewis added, "The Winston Speaker Series has served as an outstanding resource and positioned Winston as the "thought leader" on issues related to dyslexia and language-based learning differences."
 
The Speaker Series is sponsored, in part, by the Summit Area Public Foundation. To register for Simplicity Parenting visit events.constantcontact.com or visit winstonschool.org.  For more information or with questions, contact Elissa Cordrey, Director of Institutional Advancement at 973-379-4114, ext. 202.
 
The Winston School of Short Hills currently has 83 students from 24 towns enrolled in grades 2-8. Winston students have typically experienced academic difficulties in school due to reading and writing learning challenges.
 
The Winston Center for Learning also enrolls students in grades 2-8 for an after-school program and Summer Camp. The camp runs from June 13 - July 21, 2016. To register or for more information, visit winstonschool.org.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
