Having a baby is an exciting time in your life. Whether this is your first or third, each arrival brings great joy and new challenges. When you add the transition out to Family Leave and then back to work, plus an ever-changing “new normal,” you deserve an army of support. That’s where the LEGO Welcome Baby, Welcome Back to Work Program comes in.  Classes, Conversations and Coaching will help you and your peer colleagues more easily master new beginnings for you and your baby.

Each Flash Class includes an easily digestible (15 min+/-)  Video and Handouts that unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Click on any title below and watch the video as often as you would like and share the handouts with your caregiving partner.

Next are Conversations, led by Peace at Home Parenting experts.  Come together with your LEGO Colleagues to learn, share and gain support.  If you miss a conversation, the recording and handouts will be posted below and in your course catalog. In 2022, we will be meeting quarterly, and links to register will be included here as well as on your live calendar.  Don’t worry – we will send you a reminder each quarter too! Here is the Q1 Conversation scheduled:

Birthing mothers strive to balance involvement in the world of work with the biological and emotional changes that accompany a recent birth. Parent involvement with a baby’s total care can be immensely rewarding as well as exhausting, and relinquishing some of that care to others is often anxiety-provoking.

From eating, sleeping (or not), and just surviving to answering questions like, “Will work harm my relationship with my baby?” busy parents like you appreciate quick evidence-based solutions to everyday challenges as well as major concerns.

Schools face academic loss challenges every year, and in response to COVID-19 we are seeing an even greater loss and a widening of the achievement gap. So how can we address the loss and build understanding? First, we can start with building empathy, and then as a community, we can embrace the academic challenge.

Led by Peace at Home Parenting experts Amy Alamar, Ed D, and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, this series addresses the important issues faced by educators: How do we build community and approach academics after such a challenging time in education? What have students experienced, what do they need, and how can we begin to capture their attention and engage them in learning? We will introduce practical and effective ways to emphasize emotional safety and equity for in-person and hybrid environments. 

This series supports the ability of educators to:

  • Recall strategies to build resilience
  • Foster community and nurture relationships
  • Recognize and address grief 
  • Establish/Re-establish routine
  • Use mindfulness to teach self-regulation at home and at school
  • Contribute toward a common vision for the community

Schools and Families Working Together to Support Social Emotional Skills
Stress Reduction for Children, Parents, and Educators

What’s Mindfulness and Why is it so Important

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge.

What is most delightful and sometimes maddening about children is that they are right here in this moment. They try to bring us into the present, but we often resist – cell phone in hand, shopping list in mind, eyes on the road to the future or worrying about the past. When we spend a lot of time on “auto-pilot,” life begins to feel empty and our relationship with our children can suffer. This series is focused on the meaning of mindfulness, why it is important and explores ways you can bring it into your life right this minute. In this library of classes you will learn ways to:

  • Apply strategies to respond effectively to stress in the moment.
  • Teach these practices to children, from toddlers to high school students.
  • Apply tools to use when children demonstrate challenging behaviors.
  • Make healthier choices with your time and energy to increase family connection
  • Reduce overall stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Use play to connect with each other in happy ways
