Nurturing Parenting

New Parent Support Program - Nurturing Parenting

Becoming a new parent is a time of excitement and anxiety. We can help you develop or improve your parenting skills in the privacy of your own home. Whether you are expecting your first child or already have children up to three years of age, your local Fleet and Family Support Center has friendly staff members who can help you become a better parent.

You will learn:

  • How to bond with baby.
  • How to child-proof your home and prepare it for baby’s arrival.
  • The stages of child development.
  • Skills, strategies and techniques to promote the growth and development of your child.
  • How to balance the demands of caring for your child with caring for yourself.

 

We do not have to remind you that raising a family in the military is not always easy. Moves. Deployments. Separation. Stress. Being a single parent has its own set of challenges when taking on the roles of Sailor, parent and trying to find time to take care of yourself. That's why we say that if you're feeling a little anxiety, it really is normal! You are not alone. We can help.

What Will The Visits Be Like?

Expect laughter! This is no home inspection or white-glove test. If you already have kids, your home visitor will probably show up with toys, games and spend a fair amount of time sitting on the floor with you and the kids.

If your child is not yet born, we’ll talk about prenatal information from pregnancy to birth and infant care.

We will begin by taking time to learn what you know, what you need and where your concerns are. Then, we will create a schedule of future support visits that fit your schedule.

How Do I Sign Up?

Just contact your nearest Fleet and Family Support Center. It's always voluntary, it's easy, and it's free.
