- Stephanie
It's no wonder our clients are raving about this powerful method for reclaiming independent play...
Parenting can be totally overwhelming.
Parenting can be totally overwhelming.
Every family has its own unique challenges.

Maybe you've become a bit of a martyr... Taking care of everyone but yourself, longing for bedtime to roll around so you can collapse into bed... only to do it all over again the next day.

If you have an only child, you might be exhausted being "everything" to them. 
Or if you have more than one, you're suddenly the Peace Keeper, constantly keeping siblings from attacking each other.
Maybe it feels like Toys R' Us threw up in your living room - toys everywhere and yet your children still cling to you like velcro babies.

You might be wondering: Why don't they play with all these toys we've invested so much $$ in? Why are they always asking for snacks or screens?

Or you might be craving a few moments to yourself! To finish a sentence in your own head, to send that email, cook dinner or go to the bathroom... alone. 
Maybe it's been a hot minute since you got a quiet minute.

Maybe you're feeling a bit more "hot mess" mom and a bit less "rockstar mom" right now...
 
But... you deserve to enjoy parenting.

That's why getting your child to play independently would be great for you, and great for your child too.
Good News:
All children are designed to play for hours a day!

Buy this, not another toy.
Buy this, not another toy.
What do I get?
Quick, easy, and effective steps to encourage deep, imaginative play all day... 
The Childhood Design Course will take you less than one hour to complete - but it will get you hours a day of independent play when you implement what you learn.

You'll discover all about the secrets of... 
THE IMAGINATION ZONE
Learn why children need pretend play in order to process emotional events, to develop social skills and to enhance their vocabulary, executive function and emotional regulation. In this zone you'll offer your child the opportunity to sink into a deep world of imagination and emerge stronger each time they do.

THE MESSY ZONE
Mess - argh! The nemesis many parents fight on the daily. But our children need sensory development, fine motor skills, and to explore the newtonian laws of physics with various textures... all this helps them tremendously with their focus and their dexterity. Not to mention - it's fun! But the issue is that play dough, slime, paint, and even crayons - find their way into the nooks and crannies of our home, permanently staining or just driving us mad - which is why you'll discover the creative ways of containing the mess and answering your child's developmental needs.

THE MOVEMENT ZONE
Little kids can drive us up the wall when they start climbing the wall - going stir crazy and jumping on the sofas... which is why we need to answer that need in an appropriate way! In this section of the mini course, you'll learn how to make a zone that answers your child's need for gross motor development, balance, muscular strength, core tone - and so much more.

THE QUIET ZONE
All children need time to rest and regulate - especially if they have lots of melt downs and tantrums. When emotions are running high or energy is running low - you'll learn how to redirect them to the zone that supports their need to recharge - and your need for a break.

THE FOCUS ZONE
Attention spans have been decreasing over the past few decades - but our children need to learn how to finish a project, focus as they do their homework, complete a puzzle, do a science experiment and how to treat their materials with respect and care. That's what you'll develop in this zone.

THE YES SPACE
Is your child still a baby? No worries! In this section you'll learn how to start off the path of independent play from day one and how to prepare your home for your baby's developmental needs - play that will eventually grow and expand to each of the zones outlined above.

This is just a taster of good things to come inside of Present Play. In fact, once you download your app you will be able to preview Present Play inside - but hang on, because doors only open once a year and you'll only be able to join in April, so meanwhile enjoy the mini course and make sure you're on the waitlist for the full experience - Present Play
Nope! We've adapted the mini course to help parents of babies start off on the right foot. Not waiting until your child has developed "bad" habits is the best thing you could possibly do - because independent play and the skills it takes can begin as early as day one!
This course is designed for parents of young children, ages 0-9. Many of our members have older children than this, usually with younger siblings. If your youngest is a tween or older, then not all the content will be as applicable. You are still welcome to join even if your children don't fit within this age bracket because much of what we learn is applicable to our own lives as parents.
No. We design solutions for homes with and without storage, with and without playrooms, with and without backyards. Even if you are currently traveling in an RV or up to your chin in moving boxes, you can use the tools found within Childhood Design. If you're moving, this is the perfect time to implement Childhood Design principles in your new home. Your home could be big or small - all you need is a flexible, open mind and the belief that you can make it work.
Yes! It’s amazing when you can start out early. Although some of the information won’t be relevant just yet, you’ll be learning from experienced parents and their parenting "mistakes" to prepare for what's to come. Pregnancy and maternity leave offer a tremendous opportunity to lay a solid foundation for peace, presence, and play within your home.
Erm, in a word – no. How each child plays is as unique as their fingerprints. Temperament, environment, attachment, personality, health, developmental stage… all these factors and more contribute to the content, cadence and character of a child’s play. We believe every child is capable of benefiting from long stretches of flow and play. What that looks like for your child, how that looks in your home, and when you start to see growth is based on your unique situation and your open-minded commitment to practicing the skills and tools we offer
When you enroll now, your spot is secured. You will receive an email with all the easy peasy instructions to download the app and get binging today... you could be "done" with the course and ready to implement all you've learned in as little as an hour!
