The transition back to work from Family Leave can be challenging. 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 baby’s total care can be immensely rewarding as well as exhausting, and relinquishing some of that care to others is often anxiety-provoking. Parents gain easy access to expert information and guidance from the Welcome Baby – Welcome Back to Work library while on Family Leave and as they return to work. From eating, sleeping and just surviving to answering questions like, “Will work harm my relationship with my baby?” busy parents appreciate quick evidence-based solutions to everyday challenges as well as major concerns.

Your older child was so excited about the new baby. But now that your baby has arrived, he is uncooperative and sometimes acts like a baby, himself. Meanwhile, you’re trying to control your youngest as she starts to throw tantrums and learns the word “no.”
This scenario is all too common, but there are simple tools you can use to increase your children’s compliance and decrease your stress.
Participants will be able to:
- Understand why your kids are acting up in this way
- Create routines that prevent challenging behaviors
- Promote cooperative relationships between your baby and everyone else in the family
- Implement easy, everyday practices that make for a peaceful home
