These classes help me have less worry, and that helps me remain focused on work.
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 don’t feel so alone. There are many of us that struggle with the work/home life balance.
Providing tips to improve the home-life has allowed for more brain space for productivity at work.
It is good to know that my employer realizes that work/life balance is huge. Knowing how to support my child at home allows my mind to be free to concentrate on and perform my job more effectively.
Home life and work life are never truly separate. Working through stabilizing one will always stabilize the other.
This class is very in tune with my needs. I appreciate this so much
As a mom, I often joke that I've worked a full day before I get to work, and I'll work another one after I logoff. There's a constant pull between the two and when either role (mom/work) gets more difficult or stressful, it pulls your attention. By having reinforcement that I'm not alone in struggling with these issues, help in understanding what I can do alone and when to call in help, and easy access to these resources, it helps mitigate the stress parenting adds to the mix.
Overall the classes help to make me less stressed. I have the tools to be a better parent and a better human. These tools presented in the class are useful everyday and can be used in work situations also. For example, calming down with breathing techniques when stressed out or in an uncomfortable situation.
I'm typically eye-roll-y / skeptical about people telling me how to raise my kids, but found this webinar to be incredibly insightful, non-judgemental, realistic, and meeting each of us where we're at. So great!
I have been to a few of the webinars now and this is BY FAR the best one yet. So helpful. The lady leading it answered ALL questions in depth.
Organizations like yours are in a completely different category in my mind. You are not a random parent on the Internet but clearly a unit of highly educated professionals with deep knowledge that comes from understanding years and years of research. This positions you to provide not a “one size fits all” approach but one that each parent can benefit from for their unique situation in life. A HUGE difference. There is an extra level of credibility and trust that comes with you being more than a fellow parent but a fellow parent who brings objectivity and data rather than only the world of what you personally know.
