Transitioning Home discussion groups

on February 18th, 2012 at 4:25:49 PM

A parent who leaves the paid workforce to be at home often experiences unexpected feelings and questions related to being an at-home parent. Family and Home Network offers Transitioning Home parent discussion groups and during this six-week series of meetings, we cover many topics including:

· Expectations, personal identity and the potential for personal growth

· The needs of infants and the critical mother-infant relationship

· Myths and realities of a home-based life

· Family, community, cultural influences

We meet online, using Google+ hangouts. Each Transitioning Home discussion group will include up to 6 parents and a facilitator from FAHN; meetings will last 90 minutes. Materials for reading between meetings, reflection/writing opportunities, and both individual and group exercises will be provided. Some materials will be emailed to you each week, some is offered on a private website just for Transitioning Home participants. 

For more information, and to indicate your interest, please see the Transitioning Home webpage.
