Think You're Not a "New" Parent?
Even if you have been raising your family for a few years, new ages and stages of development bring different challenges. Even if you have older children, you continue to be eligible for NPSP if you are expecting a baby or have a child who is 3 years old or younger.
Is This Your First Baby or a New Addition?
Often a new baby presents a change in the family dynamic, whether this is your first baby or a new addition. Demands on your time are different with more than one child in your home and the demands of a newborn can be overwhelming. Sometimes, the marital relationship is stressed because of differences in parenting styles, skill sets, and attitudes. NPSP can help you to address some of these issues and open the lines of communication.
Home visits are arranged, when possible, at your convenience. Families can schedule visits so that both parents can be present to learn about being a parent or acquire new skills in caring for a growing family.
