Welcome Baby, Welcome Back To Work. The transition back to work from Family Leave can be challenging, especially for mothers. They strive to balance involvement in the adult world of work with the biological and emotional changes that accompany a recent birth.  Being involved with the baby’s total care can be immensely rewarding as well as exhausting, and relinquishing some of that care to others is often anxiety-provoking.  New moms and dads need and will benefit from support from family, friends, and their workplaces. One family friendly option for your company to offer is Peace at Home Parenting Solutions’ Welcome Baby and Back to Work digital program which includes expert facilitated support group discussions, brief recorded classes, and private coaching sessions. 

Parents gain easy access to expert information and much-needed support while on Family Leave with their new baby and as they return to work.  During live online support group conversations led by infant mental health expert JoAnn Robinson, PhD, parents ask questions and get solutions for their concerns about feeding, sleep, and their own feelings of overwhelm. Parents are often comforted to know they are not alone in their concerns. JoAnn often includes other Peace At Home early childhood experts to join her conversations and all of our experts are available for private coaching sessions.  Welcome Baby parents can watch brief recorded classes about topics that range from baby temperament and getting ready for childcare to concerns about how working will impact parents’ attachment with baby.  

Parent well-being is a key issue for Peace at Home Parenting Solutions and we are ready to offer evidence-based strategies, support and guidance to busy parents making this important transition.

Little Kids, Big Emotions: Help Young Children Thrive

The emotions center of your young child’s brain is developing faster than the thinking part of their brain. That is why they sometimes get swamped with emotions and have unreasonable meltdowns. Your young child needs your calm energy to help their overwhelmed brain calm down. You have probably already noticed that timeouts, threats and punishments really don’t help and actually often make things worse. So how do we help young children manage their emotions and their behavior? This series of classes will help you:

  • Recognize the importance of developing practices to calm your brain when your child is upset
  • Apply effective strategies to reduce and respond to tantrums and help your child manage their emotions
  • Create routines and apply positive discipline approaches that support cooperation in young children

You may be like many parents who want to be more patient. Maybe you want to stop yelling, threatening and punishing. Yet, you can’t imagine how to inspire cooperation without those old standby methods. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that through punishment you might scare a child into following directions in the short run, but you don’t get long term behavior changes. Mountains of research has shown without doubt that children seek connection with their parents and those parents who focus that connection on positive behavior, win more cooperation. This “Positive Discipline, Peaceful Home” library will help you:

  • Build your parent-child relationship in ways that will effectively increase cooperation
  • Recognize specific steps to ignore negative behaviors and reinforce those behaviors that you want from your child
  • Apply an approach to discipline that will help your child learn self-control rather than fear authority

Routines are powerful tools. They bring you and your young child closer and reduce power struggles. Routines help little ones predict what comes next, trust that you will meet their needs, and feel more confident. Transitions between activities can be challenging and routines ease those difficulties and help children learn. Routines also decrease behavior corrections and increase cooperation in your child.

Parents who participate in “Routines that Work with Little Ones” Library will be able to:

  • Apply effective strategies to help your young child cooperate with daily activities like getting dressed or eating meals
  • Create routines that are enjoyable, include key child learning principles  
  • Recognize the role parents play in carrying out routines that work
  • Address ‘hot spots’ that frustrate parents, like transitions between activities, and get in the way of parents attending to their responsibilities.

This class series covers the basics for parents from pregnancy through baby’s first year. You know you are about to have a life changing experience but you may not be able to imagine it. Parents who take time to learn about pregnancy and birth tend to have increased confidence during labor and delivery, improved birth outcomes and a higher likelihood of breastfeeding. Learning about caring for your baby and your body before birth will strengthen family well-being. 

The early weeks after birth can be confusing and exhausting while you and your baby learn how to manage feeding and sleeping. Learn about your baby’s early needs and development so you are ready to adapt to life with your newborn. Strategies that balance their needs with yours really make a difference.  Infants thrive when parents recognize temperament, how the baby learns, and how your early weeks together can be enhanced when you create rhythms and routines to care for the baby and yourself. 

 This Peace At Home Parenting Solutions Library provides needed guidance to pregnant and postpartum parents of infants up to one year of age. Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize risks to pregnant women and newborn babies, especially for women of color
  • Identify action steps you can take to protect your health and your baby
  • Work together with your medical provider to help you build a healthy birth through informed consent and other strategies
  • Recognize and respond effectively to your newborn’s needs and cues
  • Identify and apply positive solutions to common concerns during baby’s first year
  • Recognize the importance of self-care to create balance and family well-being, especially when parents return to work
