When you buy a new pencil sharpener, it comes with instructions. When you have, adopt, or foster a child, you essentially get the most complicated little thing on earth, with no instructions. Our belief is that effective parenting strategies exist, can be learned, and need to be taught. We are not born knowing how to read, drive a car, or even tie our shoes. These are all things we are taught (and figure out a bit on our own). Parenting is really no different. If you were lucky enough to have perfect caregivers, you may have learned a lot about parenting from them. Even so, there is probably a lot more to know. We strive to offer courses that will help you to be the very best parent you can be - and to enjoy it! Our Effective Parenting Course covers effective discipline strategies and how to maintain a healthy attachment to your child. Our New Mothers Course offers a broad range of support including how to adjust to life with an infant, how to maintain your personal relationships, forming healthy sleep, feeding, and nap routines, managing postpartum issues, and much more.
