Take the Stress Out of Parenting
Parents are less stressed when their kids cooperate. Children are more cooperative when they feel positively connected with their parents. Learn the tools you need to quickly create the calm, joyful family you really want.
Be Your Child’s Calm Center: How to Stay Calm When Your Child is Stressed
Human beings are built to reflect each other’s emotions. When our children display intense feelings and behaviors, our brains naturally reflect those. You probably start to feel stressed, angry, fearful, or overwhelmed just like your kids. And you can’t help your child solve their problem or manage their behaviors if your own brain is stressed. So what can you do differently? You will learn practical strategies to help you be a calm center for your child’s emotional world.
Bring Your Inner Child To Work Day
Let’s be real…many of us have had our kids “at work” enough over the past couple of years, but what about our “inner child?” Let’s bring them out to play. Parents are vulnerable to passing on to their children unhealthy patterns of the past. Understanding your own childhood – both the positive and difficult experiences – can prevent us from recreating the harm to our children that was done to us.

Rebalance Chores at Home and Reignite Your Relationship with Your Partner: Playful Practical Strategies to Reduce the Stress and Increase Harmony
Tools to create a more balanced and harmonious partnership with less tension over daily life creating room for fun and fulfillment. Most agree that finding ways to fairly share responsibilities at home is very important to feeling satisfied for couples who are married or living together. However, in 2020, 55% of men said they are very satisfied with this aspect of their relationship, while only 38% of women see it the same way. So to honor Women’s Equality Day, let’s dig into these differing views and discover what really works for both partners. Everybody loses out when we don’t have equity and everybody needs to participate in recalibrating how we do things to reach equality. Join us for an enlightening conversation and discover a new, highly effective approach to solving the persistent challenge of gender equity in household tasks among heterosexual couples.
Find Time for Fitness When There's No Time At All
We parents of young children have too much to do and not enough time to do it. So certain things fall off the to-do list, and fitness is usually one of the first to go. At the same time, we know deep down that we are more patient and positive when we take at least good enough care of ourselves.

Without strategies and support, you may find yourself overreacting, overwhelmed, worn out, angry, anxious, or even hopeless.
