The Benefits for Parents and Children
According to several NIH-funded research studies:
Family Foundations babies experience fewer birth problems like premature birth or low birth weight, and have shorter hospital stays.
Family Foundations couples are less stressed after their child is born – new moms and dads also report less anxiety and postpartum depression
Easier Infant Care
Family Foundations infants have fewer night wakings, are more easily soothed, are better able to soothe themselves, and show a longer attention span
Well Adjusted Children
Family Foundations children get along with their peers better and show fewer emotional problems. Teachers report they are more engaged in school and show more persistence in schoolwork
Warmer, Patient Parenting
Family Foundations parents are more affectionate and patient with their children – and report less over-reactive, harsh, and physically punitive parenting
Closer Couple Relations
Family Foundations couples are better at working as a team – and they report more affection and support with each other
Parenting Is Tough,
The Numbers Prove It.
“This is the brutal reality about children – they’re such powerful stressors that small perforations in relationships can turn into deep fault lines.”
