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 or visit  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

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
