Co-Parenting & Intergenerational Homes


Parenting differences between partners can be helpful, but over time those conflicting parenting styles can become problematic. When other adults are helping to raise your child, things can get even more challenging.

Let’s Get on the Same Page: Practical Steps to Resolve Parenting Style Conflicts
Each of us grows up in a unique family and when we come together as a couple, we don’t usually talk about our parenting beliefs until children are actually on the scene. Unfortunately, different parenting styles can cause undue stress on a marriage. But there are practical strategies you can use to get on the same page with your partner about common parenting disagreements. Join us to understand conflicting parenting styles and learn how to resolve your conflicts as a team.
Fair Play: How to Find Balance and Harmony When Sharing Household Tasks

In the Trenches: Navigate Challenging Co-Parenting Relationships
Co-parenting is often a challenge for parents living apart. The impact of constant stress and arguments can be exhausting. This course will help you recognize factors that interfere with cooperative co-parenting and provide you with concrete strategies to reduce conflict.
Cooperative Co-parenting for Separated & Divorced Parents
Co-parenting can be stressful after a divorce, separation, or anytime parents are not in a couple relationship. Learn the importance of “cooperative co-parenting” and strategies to support your children. This class will help you minimize conflict when navigating parenting responsibilities across households.
Bring Calm and Cooperation to Your Intergenerational Home
Is your family the source of your stress or the solution to it? The answer is likely both. If your family includes several generations of caregivers or if you find yourself part of the “sandwich generation,” taking care of both your children and your own parents, you can still work toward a peaceful home. Join us to better balance the needs and values of intergenerational families for calm and cooperation at home.
Navigating Seasons of Change
Adjusting to a new school, new friends, new childcare, new family structure through divorce or other family changes can be both positive and daunting at the same time. Join us to discuss supporting kids to cope with changes like these and others..
Dad, Let's Talk. Give Your Child the Attention They Crave
Finding your own nurturing style as a dad can be tricky. But learning how to meet your child’s emotional needs doesn’t have to be too complicated. We can help. We all carry our own ideas about what fatherhood means, and these ideas are often influenced by our own experiences. Becoming aware of those beliefs and behaviors helps us to decide what we want to pass on and what to leave behind. Join a Peace At Home expert and other dads in learning how to create rules, routines, rhythms and rituals within your family that support a peaceful home.

Be Your Child’s Calm Center: How to Stay Calm When Your Child is Stressed

During this live, online class, you will learn practical strategies to help you be a calm center for your child’s emotional world.
