Parenthood is a whirlwind of emotions

Published 14.08.2023 - Produced by Family Federation of Finland
Parenthood evokes all kinds of emotions. The aim of this course is to develop your emotional skills as a parent and to help you to explore your own emotional reactions plus the messages and needs behind them. This can help to increase your wellbeing and satisfaction amid the hubbub of parenting. You can go through the entire course step by step or choose a section that interests you to read in more detail. If you are experiencing an acute crisis, please contact your municipality’s antenatal clinic or social services.
