We understand how challenging it is today to meet the needs and desires of children while trying to take care of yourself and your relationship with your partner simultaneously. It feels almost impossible at times as we are pulled in a million directions.
However, as caregivers and parents, we need to regularly take an objective view of the balancing of these relationships. One of the most important aspects for caregivers is to take care of ourselves while we are taking care of others. Similar to being on an airplane during an emergency: The flight attendance remind us to “put the oxygen mask on ourselves BEFORE we put it on the child”. We are no good to the children if we pass out, right? Just like we are no good to our children if we are not setting limits with our kids and taking care of ourselves.
A large body of research documents the benefits of developing social and emotional skills and a positive mental health state during childhood. These are crucial developmental periods that set the stage for well-being later in life. Our mission is to deliver stimulating programs that support the mental, emotional, social and physical well-being of all family members and build healthy family relationships.
Through our home visits, group workshops and in-person and virtual coaching we have taught thousands of parents the basics of child development and how to set limits while fostering values such as family cooperation, child self-reliance and empowerment.
