Content. It starts with evidence-based strategies, from birth through young adulthood, proven to make a difference in your life.  Easily digestible and simple to implement, our solutions help you bring more connection, cooperation and joy back into your family. Less stress, more control, and more productivity.

Tools. Live classes and conversations, digital libraries, 1:1 coaching, and community. Multiple tools connecting you to our experts and solutions.

Peace At Home parents are more confident and effective because they recognize:

  • The powerful effect of relationships on brain development
  • The essential needs and tasks associated with each developmental stage
  • And the impact of mirror neurons on mood and well-being

Peace At Home parents come to understand that children’s behavior tells a story — that they are not “acting out” but “reaching out.”  Ruth E. Freeman, LCSW, founded the company on her belief that practicing and teaching kindness, compassion, and respect toward self and others is essential to growth and productivity in both children and adults.

What People Are Saying

This class was very informative and I learned some very useful information that I can begin using at home immediately. It also gave me some insight into my toddler's way of learning and coping. It was super helpful and I look forward to what the next offering might be. I think I will likely visit the Peace At Home site on my own as well.

- Julie T,

Thanks for sharing! I appreciate Yum providing career AND FAMILY training tools.

So sorry I had to leave the class early for a work meeting. I will join the suggested follow-up trainings for sure!

- Amanda A,

I'm so grateful that CVS has given us access to such wonderful seminars.

- Jennifer B,

I watched one of the recorded classes and it helped tremendously with my boys tonight. I’m usually yelling while my oldest has a tantrum. I stayed calm and ignored his negative behaviors and acknowledged when my boys did something positive. First night I didn’t lose my cool and I just wanted to say thank you. I followed the checklist for success and it worked :)

- Megan, Connecticut

What an incredible resource for MIT employees! I will definitely attend another session and will recommend this resource to colleagues. Blown away by the presentation and how simply the solutions were presented. I feel very prepared to have some good conversations with my tween (and my 8-year-old-who-thinks-he's-a-teen!). Thank you

- JoAnna, MIT,
