1. Getting Started
Welcome to Bold Parents! Our goal is to provide you with all the resources we wish we had when we were working parents of young children. From planning tools to templates for engaging in meaningful conversations with the people you care about, we have put it all here.
While there is so much to be excited about becoming a new parent, it is also a huge life transition. At the start of our work together we will provide you with tools to help you tap into your inner resources to build and increase your resilience. Think of it as vitamins for your emotional life.
3. Understanding Your Story
Each of us has a life story with a central narrative. We often underestimate the power of our internal story and how it impacts the way we experience the events in our lives. So, let’s start by capturing your story.
4. Current State: A Snapshot of Your Life
In order to have healthy identities as parents, we need to know a great deal about ourselves to live in alignment with what is most important to us. Are your priorities balanced? Are you devoting time and energy to the things that matter most? Are all aspects or needs fulfilled?
5. Creating a Vision for Your Family
As we look at our childhood, we often have a mixed bag of experiences–some great, some neutral, some difficult, and possibly even catastrophic. What aspects of your childhood do you want to pass on to your children? What do you want to avoid or ensure does not get passed down?
6. Guiding Values
Life satisfaction and fulfillment are often connected to how aligned we are with our values, and the key to creating alignment is to translate these unique values into action. We pass down values to our children, and we communicate them through words, behaviors, choices, and the structures, routines, and rituals we build into our lives.
7. Emotional Readiness for Parenthood
To be ready for a baby, means to expect and embrace the full spectrum of feelings; and having a baby comes with LOTS of them. Being emotionally ready helps us adapt and move through transitions in a state of psychological willingness, equipped with the skills to learn and take on new responsibilities.
8. Managing Worries
One of the best tools to manage our emotions is to accept them – even the messy, complicated, and confusing ones. Developing the skill of being honest with yourself about what you feel and communicating it to the people in your life that you love, is central to our emotional health.
9. Building Strong Relationships
If you are experiencing parenthood with a co-parent, there will be no shortage of conversations that unfold as you design how to work with each other. It must be your style with your values, toward your vision together. This section will focus on best practices to maintain a healthy relationship and support your busy life.
10. Critical Relationship Discussions
Whether this is your first child, or you are a seasoned parent, it is essential to consider how you want to design your relationships with your friends and family. Communicating your feelings and boundaries to your friends and family is critical to keeping an open and honest relationship.
11. Boundaries: A Parent's Best Friend
Boundaries are a crucial factor in any healthy relationship. Effective utilization of personal boundaries positively impacts the outcome of potentially risky situations. In this section, we define and explore boundaries and how to set and enforce them.
12. Planning Templates
Plan for baby with editable templates to think through parental leave, financial well-being, your current state, composing your delivery plan, and even considerations around childcare.
