This series addresses ways to support the unique strengths and challenges of gifted first generation college students. First generation college students are more likely to be members of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, come from low income households, and commute from home. Sadly, these traits are also commonly associated with students dropping out of college. In this series you will explore ways to support your gifted first generation college student including strategies to help you:

  • Build positive relationships with your maturing child
  • Support your child’s social emotional well-being
  • Talk to teens in positive ways and how to give effective feedback
  • Recognize the importance of mindset 
  • Effectively foster independence in your child
  • Set limits and reduce conflict
  • Grow your understanding of stress and the brain

Teachers and administrators communicate with all stakeholders in a school community regularly. It can be a challenge to meet the communication needs of students, parents, and staff, all while planning, implementing and evaluating curriculum. The language parents and educators use to respond to children can actually help or hinder how they learn and how high their self-esteem is. Research has shown that once youth understand how their brain works and what they can do to optimize brain health, their social emotional health and motivation to learn increases. In this series, parents and educators can learn about the relationship between executive functions and emotional regulation, and how that affects academics in addition to stress and well-being.

Led by Peace at Home Parenting Amy Alamar, Ed D and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, this series will explore how to:

  • Learn more about the connection between self-esteem and growth mindset
  • Learn how to use growth-based feedback to encourage children to take appropriate risks and feel more confident to try new things.
  • Give feedback using language that supports youth’s self-esteem
  • Coach youth back to confidence after a failure 
  • Learn about how stress affects different parts of the brain and the impact that has on learning and emotional well-being
  • Practice stress reduction techniques that can be taught to children or students
  • Make a plan for teaching children/students about how their brain works and what they can do to optimize brain health

Peace at Home Parenting’s Amy Alamar, Ed D and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, will introduce the research behind gratitude and share the benefits of practicing gratitude. We know a regular practice increases a  student’s sense of belonging, strengthens relationships, increases happiness, builds self-esteem, reduces stress & anxiety, supports  resilience, nurtures motivation, improves academic performance, and encourages engagement in extra-curriculars. We will also introduce research-based methods of practice including journaling, letter writing, and compiling a strengths inventory. Support for social emotional growth does not just happen during school hours – especially now, with so many families helping with hybrid and distance learning. We will also explore how young people can apply the skills they learn to strengthen family relationships and wellbeing and make an authentic home-school connection.

After this session, educators will be able to:

  • Define Gratitude
  • Identify the components of gratitude (Benefactor (person, thing or condition), Benefit, Personal Value, Cost,  Intention)
  • Coach students through developing meaningful messages of gratitude 
  • Explain how gratitude practices & technology can increase students’ sense of belonging, self-esteem and motivation.
  • Explore practices counselors can use to help students process emotions, behaviors, and decision-making.
  • Discuss ways counselors can support educators to strengthen student social-emotional wellbeing
  • Define digital citizenship 
  • Explore taking responsibility for your online interactions
  • Share gratitude practices to build digital citizenship, SEL, & wellbeing

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
