Beyond Bringing Baby Home – Next Steps Weekend Getaway
A Whole Family Learning Opportunity

When a baby arrives everything changes…Explore how to keep your relationship healthy and happy as you navigate the next steps in parenting beyond infancy.

This illuminating weekend getaway provides a relaxing, educational and safe context in which parents can explore their experiences as they continue to journey through their transition to parenthood beyond the first six months after bringing baby home.  Couples will build on their common knowledge base as we discuss parenting and relationship joys, challenges, and next steps.  As family focus is shifted to baby, many parents find themselves desiring more connection as a couple.  This Getaway builds on the concepts and skills introduced in the Bringing Baby Home Workshop.  By strengthening your partner-to-partner relationship, you will foster a solid foundation for your child’s social, emotional and cognitive growth.

Topics Discussed Include:

–The reality of parenthood – after the first six months
–How to stay emotionally connected with your partner
–Managing differences without damage – nurturing your relationship
–Couples and conflict – avoiding relationship meltdown and increasing relationship satisfaction
–Parenting together – the power of positive parenting
–Infant development and communication
–Understanding your child’s emotional world
–Creating family values through rituals of connection and family traditions
