At HumanHQ® we believe that parents hold the key to peace in the world, and we are committed to evolution and to empowering families in creating a fabulous family life.
Preparation is key. And this goes beyond learning how to change a nappy/diaper or feeding a baby.
It's about having the knowledge, the tools, the resources and the mentorship to build a healthy relationship with our child from day one; To create a harmonious family environment; To support your and baby's physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing.
If you truly want to give your baby the best start in life, and for your child to grow up differently than how you did, you've come to the right place.
‘Every other occupation, from driving a truck to performing surgery, requires months or years of training. Only for the job of raising children do we expect that love will be enough.
But, sometimes it isn't. Parents also need skills.’*
Parents from a wide range of backgrounds and family arrangements**, were interviewed as part of The Emotional Experiences of Early Parenthood project*** about their experiences of becoming a parent. In their findings, ‘many felt that, as a parent-to-be, they had been too focused on pregnancy and childbirth,’ and ‘most parents interviewed described having “unrealistic” expectations about baby behaviour, particularly in relation to crying, sleep patterns and feeding.’
Parents were often surprised to discover a new baby placed their relationship with their partner under strain. Many parents were distressed by the difference between their expectations and experiences of early parenthood. Some described feelings of anger, anxiety and resentment towards their babies, guilt or a sense of failure.
But there is good news...
‘Those for whom becoming a parent held few “surprises” described less distress'
