And just like that, you’re a parent. Nothing could be more exciting, joyful and—if we’re being honest—terrifying. To varying degrees, ALL new parents feel that way. We certainly did.
Think about it: You’re taking on what is arguably the single most important role of your whole life. And you’re doing it with zero experience. There’s no other job in the world that requires so little training!
So, how has generation after generation done it? Are we just supposed to wing it?
Yes, but only to a point. Trusting your instincts can be vital as a parent. But knowing when to seek guidance can be equally as important. The recent boom in developmental research has shown that many of our long-held parenting beliefs are unhealthy at best—and downright damaging at worst.
With that in mind, it makes good sense to proactively build a parenting foundation. And that’s where we come in.
We’re here to help you through the six fundamental transitions your child will go through between today and the day you drop him or her off at college. From establishing what you want for your kids to aligning with your partner to understanding and evolving your parenting style, we can make your journey easier, more fulfilling and a lot more fun.
Not because there’s a “right” way to be a mom or dad. But because there’s a right way for you to be the mom or dad you want to be—and a way to prepare for and successfully navigate some of the predictable emotional processes that lie ahead.
